About Us

City of Hope is a world leader in the research and treatment of cancer, diabetes, and other life-threatening diseases. Designated as a comprehensive cancer center, the highest recognition bestowed by the National Cancer Institute, City of Hope is also a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, with research and treatment protocols that advance care throughout the nation.

The City of Hope story began in 1913, when a group of volunteers, spurred by compassion to help those afflicted with tuberculosis, raised money to start a free, nonsectarian tuberculosis sanatorium.


By the mid-1940s, thanks to the discovery of antibiotics, tuberculosis was on the decline in the U.S. However, City of Hope rose to the next medical challenge, tackling the catastrophic disease of cancer — and later on, diabetes and HIV/AIDS.

Over the decades, research conducted at City of Hope has led to significant advances in modern medicine, including the development of synthetic human insulin, human growth hormone and the technology behind the widely used cancer-fighting drugs Herceptin, Rituxan and Avastin.

City of Hope is located in Duarte, California, just northeast of Los Angeles, with clinical network locations throughout Southern California. It is ranked as one of "America's Best Hospitals" in cancer by U.S. News & World Report.
