The City of Hope is a biomedical research and treatment center for cancer, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, and other life-threatening diseases. Designated as a comprehensive cancer center by the National Cancer Institute, it is one of only 47 such centers nationwide.

The city of Hope is also a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, an alliance of 21 world-renowned cancer centers that develops and institutes standards of care for patient treatment.

Founded in 1913, the City of Hope has become a global leader in the research and treatment of cancer and diabetes and ranks among the world’s top 10 centers for both diseases. It is also one of only 20 National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer centers nationwide β€” a distinction is given to those who have demonstrated excellence in research, clinical trials, and prevention education programs.

Southern California Gets its Largest Outpatient Cancer Insititute

The city of Hope announced on February 7 it will establish its largest clinical network site to date. The new center is one of the City of Hope’s clinical networks in Southern California, including more than 35 locations.

The two-story, 32,500-square-foot facility at 320 West 6th St. in Corona, California, is roughly three times the size of City of Hope’s previous location. As an expansion of the City of Hope’s national medical facility in Los Angeles, the new site will provide patients with better outpatient services.

“The expansion of services at this site in Corona is another step in our promise to bring world-class cancer research, care, and supportive resources to more patients,” said Vijay Trisal, M.D., City of Hope’s chief medical officer, and Dr. Norman & Melinda Payson Professor in Medicine. “With a hundred-year history of understanding that cancer does not just impact the patient, but it also impacts families and communities, we are bringing the City of Hope closer to where people live.”

The physicians and healthcare personnel at the City of Hope have access to a wide range of cutting-edge therapies and technology. Cancer patients in the Corona area will be able to participate in pioneering clinical studies that offer new drugs and treatments before they are available to the general public, thanks to the facility’s increased offerings. They’ll also have access to social work and physical therapy services to help them cope.

“Corona is honored to have a federally recognized comprehensive cancer treatment center in our city. City of Hope | Corona will be located in the heart of Corona’s Downtown Medical District and will provide state-of-the-art oncology care for people battling cancer,” said City of Corona Mayor Wes Speake. “Through Corona’s strategic geographic location, we’re confident the City of Hope will continue to expand its mission to serve more patients, families, and communities across Southern California and beyond.”
