We Stop at Nothing

A cancer diagnosis begins a battle that no one deserves. At UCI Health, we stop at nothing to treat the most complex cases, to stay at the forefront of cancer treatment and to deliver extraordinary patient care.

Cancer may be more than 100 different diseases, but at the UCI Health Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, we specialize in yours. As Orange County’s only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center — and highest ranked cancer center, according to U.S. News & World Report — we lead the way in translating scientific research into advances in patient care that saves lives.

For our patients, beating cancer means everything. That’s why we stop at nothing to prevent, to treat and cure cancer — and save lives.
