Features:

A major focus of the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is to speed up the transfer of new diagnostic and treatment techniques from the research setting to patient care. The highly integrated approach to cancer research and treatment among SCCA partner organizations supports the flow of scientific information among researchers, clinicians, and patients, thereby accelerating the development of new knowledge and treatment of various cancers.
Physicians at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance treat patients with cancer; they also conduct research at the SCCA parent organizations: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, UW Medicine, and Seattle Children’s.
Many people come to SCCA to gain access to leading-edge treatments, including clinical trials. They want to expand their options for treatment to include the latest and most innovative treatments, and they know that for many types of cancer the best chance for a cure is found in a clinical trial.
Seattle Cancer Care Alliance unites the doctors from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington Medical Center, and Seattle Children’s to form a world-class treatment center that provides advanced therapies and clinical studies for cancers and other blood disorders.
