“Irvine has so much to celebrate, and City of Hope will add to this eventful year as we open The Lennar Foundation Cancer Center this year,” said Annette Walker, president, City of Hope Orange County. “We’re grateful to be part of this thriving community where visionary leaders join with us to create a better and healthier tomorrow.”
City of Hope is investing $1 billion to develop and operate a comprehensive cancer campus of the future and regional network of advanced cancer care in Orange County. Lennar Foundation Cancer Center at City of Hope Orange County, an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center, is opening in Irvine this year, providing access to more than 400 physicians and 1,000 researchers and scientists solely focused on ending cancer. Distinguishing services include a clinical research center offering access to phase 1 to 3 trials, an outpatient center offering diagnostic imaging and screenings, medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology and much more. It will be followed by Orange County’s only specialty hospital focused exclusively on treating and curing cancer, which will open in 2025. Patients can already access City of Hope’s advanced cancer care at four Orange County locations, on Sand Canyon in Irvine and in Huntington Beach, Newport Beach Lido, and Newport Beach Fashion Island.
