About Johns Hopkins Health System
The name Johns Hopkins has become synonymous with excellence in research and patient care. Its science and medical programs earn more federal research dollars than any other medical institution in the country.
Since its opening in 1973, our Cancer Center has led the world in deciphering the mechanisms of cancer and new ways to treat it. The strength of SKCCC research and treatment programs was recognized early on by the National Cancer Institute, becoming one of the first to earn comprehensive cancer center status and recognition as a “Center of Excellence.”
Its Vision is to accelerate the transformation of cancer care by promoting the discovery of knowledge leading to the prevention and cure of human cancers.
Patients who visit the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins have access to some of the most innovative and advanced therapies in the world. Because Kimmel Cancer Center clinicians and research scientists work closely together, new drugs and treatments developed in the laboratory are quickly transferred to the clinical setting, offering patients cutting edge therapeutic options.
The Kimmel Cancer Center has a wide spectrum of specialty programs for ...both adults and children coping with cancer, including bone marrow transplantation (BMT) and new drug development. Additionally, those at high risk for developing breast, ovarian, colon and other cancers, may seek information about early detection, prevention and genetic counseling through a comprehensive genetics service.
Center also offers complete family and patient services that include a Cancer Counseling Center, survivors and palliative care programs, and two residences for patients traveling from out-of-town to receive treatment.
