SCCA at a Glance

  • More than 6,000 new cancer patients are treated at SCCA every year. Since the SCCA outpatient clinic opened its doors in 2001, over 180,000 patients have come to SCCA for everything from cancer treatment and second opinions to visiting SCCA high-risk clinics and getting mammograms.
  • According to the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB), SCCA patients have better survival rates than most patients who are treated at other cancer treatment centers. 
  • SCCA, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, UW Medicine, and Seattle Children's form the only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center in the Northwest.
  • SCCA currently has over 200 clinical trials that are actively recruiting patients. In 2014 alone, SCCA opened over 100 trials, several of which are national trials overseen by physician/investigators from SCCA, Fred Hutch, UW Medicine, and Seattle Children’s.
  • The Fred Hutch Bone Marrow Transplant Program at SCCA has performed more unrelated donor transplants than any other treatment center in the United States.
  • SCCA has Network Members in Oregon, Montana, Alaska, and Washington. Because of their relationship to SCCA, Network Members can provide their patients with the latest cancer diagnostic and treatment information as well as access to SCCA clinical trials.
  • In 2012, SCCA medical oncologists and hematologists began treating patients on the Eastside at SCCA at EvergreenHealth in Kirkland.
  • In 2013, SCCA opened the first proton therapy treatment center in the Pacific Northwest. Located at Northwest Hospital, SCCA Proton Therapy, A ProCure Center provides a compelling treatment option to pediatric and adult cancer patients who would otherwise have to travel to receive this leading-edge therapy.

  • In 2014, SCCA provided nearly $40 million in benefits to the community, including $26.4 million in uncompensated care.
  • SCCA House has become a home away from home to hundreds of patients and their families. Since it opened in 2009, SCCA House has taken over 8,000 reservations from patients who travel from around the world to come to SCCA for treatment. In 2013, SCCA House had over 2,600 reservations with patients traveling from as far away as India, China, Japan, and Brazil.
