Hope is at work: City of Hope Orange County again named a top workplace by OC Register

City of Hope Orange County has been recognized by The Orange County Register as a "Top Workplace" for the second year in a row.

This recognition is a remarkable way to end a significant year for the organization, and it comes in addition to being twice named a "Best Place to Work" by Orange County Business Journal. It is a testament to the dedication of our employees, who are the brightest minds in health care and who put their hearts and souls into delivering discoveries and breakthrough cancer treatments used around the globe.

“We are a diverse team united in our vision to speed lifesaving cancer treatments and scientific breakthroughs to the people who need it most,” said Annette M. Walker, president of City of Hope Orange County. “Many on our team work on the frontlines of patient care each day, holding our patients’ hands through their experience with cancer. Others work behind the scenes to transform cancer care delivery in Orange County through our comprehensive cancer and academic research center in Irvine and our regional cancer care network.

“To our work family, thank you,” said Walker. “Thank you for answering the call of our patients. Thank you for being an integral part of City of Hope. Because of you, hope is truly at work.”

The honor comes as City of Hope brings its pioneering research and highly specialized cancer care closer to home for more people. Our network of care now includes five locations in Orange County: City of Hope Orange County Lennar Foundation Cancer Center in Irvine, City of Hope Newport Beach Fashion Island, City of Hope Newport Beach Lido, City of Hope Huntington Beach and City of Hope Irvine Sand Canyon. Additionally, Orange County’s only specialty cancer hospital will open on our Irvine cancer campus in 2025.

All City of Hope Orange County employees benefit from an inclusive workplace environment that engages them and provides them opportunities to develop and grow — both personally and professionally.

“This organization is so special because they take care of us so we can focus on the most important thing, which is patient care,” said Diego Rodriguez, senior regional nursing director.
