City of Hope, an innovative biomedical research, treatment and educational institution, is dedicated to the prevention and cure of cancer and other life-threatening diseases, guided by a compassionate patient-centered philosophy, and supported by a national foundation of humanitarian philanthropy.
"There is no profit in curing the body,if in the process, we destroy the soul."
At City of Hope, everything we do is guided by this philosophy, penned by Samuel H. Golter, City of Hope's executive director from 1926 to 1953. We are driven by the belief that healing does not come about by a new treatment or drug alone, but also by the care and compassion that a patient receives.
Our philosophy of Hope has inspired us to develop programs that focus on treating the whole person-their emotional, spiritual and social wellbeing-in addition to their physical care. It is this combination of patient-centered care, state-of-the-art treatment and groundbreaking research that has made City of Hope a world-renowned leader in the fight against cancer, diabetes HIV/AIDS and other devastating diseases.
Clinical activity will support the Scientific Vision, enabling where appropriate the use of scientific progress to treat patients.
At the same time, the National Medical Center must succeed in meeting operational and financial goals commensurate with its status as a small hospital in a competitive and heavily managed market.
Drawing on areas of current clinical and scientific excellence and driving toward dominance in its immediate and broader markets, efforts to expand clinical service and competitiveness will be focused primarily in specific areas: leukemia and lymphoma in the Southern California market, and prostate, lung, colorectal, and breast cancers in the primary local market.
And above all else, as a medical center we are committed to City of Hope's legacy of safe and compassionate patient care.
