In July 2022, City of Hope was recognized as the seventh “Best Hospital” for cancer in the nation according to U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings. This is the 16th consecutive year we have been distinguished as one of the nation’s elite cancer hospitals. This achievement is a testament to the quality and care demonstrated by our extraordinary physicians, nurses, researchers, health care workers, and staff.
We have a rich history that is unparalleled. From two canvas cottages in a desert to comprehensive cancer center in 100 years, our technology has led to the development of numerous breakthrough drugs, including the four most widely used cancer treatments — Herceptin, Erbitux, Rituxan and Avastin. City of Hope’s research and ground breaking technology has led to the creation of synthetic human insulin (humulin), now used worldwide by millions of people with diabetes. Additionally, City of Hope researchers pioneered the application of gene therapy and blood stem cell transplants to treat patients with HIV and AIDS-related lymphoma.
