Hope Virtual

Meet with your health care team from the convenience of home

Hope Virtual is a telehealth platform that allows you to connect with members of your health care team at City of Hope through video on your smartphone, tablet or computer. Though not appropriate for all visits, with Hope Virtual you may now see your provider from home instead of having to drive to one of our facilities to receive care.

Benefits from having a televisit from home

Televisits through Hope Virtual offer many of the same benefits as an in-person visit while saving travel time,
limiting in-person visits and making it easier to coordinate your care.
