City of Hope Orange County

City of Hope’s expansion to Orange County is one of its most ambitious initiatives and one that will meet an important local need. Nearly 20 percent of Orange County residents diagnosed with cancer currently leave the area for treatment, often to City of Hope in Duarte, and sometimes to out-of-state facilities. As a result, patients and their families experience unnecessary hardships that can impede treatment and recovery. With services closer to home, even more people can access City of Hope’s care.  

We are answering the call of Orange County patients, families, local employers, and other supporters to bring our innovative discoveries and specialized therapies closer to the region. Our respectful approach to caregiving, wealth of experience in diagnosis and treatment, high-impact biomedical research enterprise, National Cancer Institute designation, and our ability to deliver the most advanced therapies have made City of Hope a frequent choice for patients with the most complex needs. 

Annette Walker, President
City of Hope Orange County

"As a partner with strong ties to this community, we will collaborate with other Orange County cancer champions and work together to provide the best cancer prevention, detection and treatments. We welcome all in the community who would like to join our efforts.
It's time to collectively acknowledge that we must work together. Cancer is the real competition. Cancer is the one to beat!"
Annette Walker - President, City of Hope Orange County
