SCCA and Fred Hutch have merged to create Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, a unified adult cancer research and care center that is a clinically integrated part of UW Medicine and UW Medicine’s cancer program. The superior care you have come to expect will continue uninterrupted.
Tomorrow’s treatments today
With the leading cancer specialists and research teams of Fred Hutch, Seattle Children’s and UW Medicine, our care combines powerful science with devoted collaboration. It’s patient-centered care and science working together. We exist to move patients forward, past boundaries and toward hope.
Welcome to MyChart
It’s important for our patients to be connected to resources and have access to their care team in one convenient portal. With SCCA’s patient portal, MyChart, patients can communicate with their care team, view their medical records, request an appointment and have access to other resources.
