As the leading hospital in cancer care, the 500-bed-capacity National Cancer Center Hospital provides the general public with the highest quality of care. Greater effectiveness in therapy and improved patient quality-of-life can be attributed to, among others, the state-of-the-art equipment. The hospital offers IMRT(Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy), Tomotherapy, PET/CT, CT simulation, Gamma cameras, Coincidence Cameras and Superconducting MRI.
The National Cancer Center Hospital(NCC), a government funded institution, strives to improve national health and welfare by reducing the incidence and mortality of cancer through research, patient care, education & training, and support for the national cancer control programs. In order to effectively achieve the above goals, NCC currently functions in the following areas:

- performing basic and clinical research on cancer;
- providing medical care services for cancer patients;
- offering education and training for health professionals and those engaged in the national cancer control programs;
- assisting the government in formulating and implementing the national cancer control program;
- providing consulting services to other medical institutions specializing in cancer
The National Cancer Center Hospital has 11 Patient oriented Centers:

Staffed by cancer specialists ranging from medical, surgical, radiological oncologists to oncology nurses, technologists and other support staff, each center tries its best to provide the patients with the best care by letting patients receive coordinated consultations and treatments. This system was designed to maximize customer satisfaction through a multidisciplinary approach to treating cancer.
Moreover, the National Cancer Center Hospital introduced the proton therapy system with a cyclotron capable of generating a 230-MeV proton beam at its Proton Therapy Center in march 2007. As the first and only establishment in Korea equipped with this most advanced radiation therapy facility, the NCC hospital will undoubtedly be able to better serve the various needs of cancer patients in Korea.

The National Cancer Center Hospital has also established a new system that facilitates rapid translation of basic discoveries made at the NCC Research Institute into promising clinical interventions for cancer patients by letting the hospital’s 60 clinical staff engage in research activities. In addition, the National Cancer Center Hospital plays a coordinating role as a leading center for developing and disseminating evidence-based standard cancer-care guidelines in Korea. It was designated as the ‘Clinical Research Center for Solid Tumors’ by the Ministry of Health & Welfare in 2005.

As cancer is a worldwide public health problem, concerted efforts are needed to address the challenges that the global community face in the fight against cancer. NCC tries to pursue mutually beneficial cooperative relations with other organizations in and out of Korea by actively joining partnership activities.
