Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) is proud to be ranked in the Top 10 in the U.S. for adult cancer care by U.S. News & World Report's 2018–2019 "Best Hospitals" surveys.
U.S. News & World Report has consistently ranked Seattle Cancer Care Alliance/University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) in the top 10 cancer care hospitals in the U.S. for 13 consecutive years. SCCA/UWMC also received “High Performing” ratings for colon cancer surgery and lung cancer surgery for the third consecutive year.
“SCCA has been amazing and responsive every step of the way,” said Brent Hall, who was recently treated at SCCA for advanced kidney cancer. The professional hydroplane driver had a team of expert doctors meet to discuss his case and determine the best treatment plan, which reflects SCCA’s multispecialty approach. Brent underwent surgery to remove the tumor in spring 2018 and, just two months later, he is back to his regular lifestyle: spending time with his wife and son — and driving at full speed.
Last year, more than 7,000 people were treated at SCCA by our world-class team of physicians, scientists, nurses, counselors and more. We are a truly unique family of people devoted to one goal: offering our patients the best hope for better, longer, richer lives.
SCCA is a global cancer leader
- Bone marrow transplantation. The Fred Hutch Bone Marrow Transplantation Program at SCCA is ranked among the best transplant centers in the nation by the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research for outperforming its expected one-year survival rates for allogeneic transplant patients — those who receive donated adult blood-forming stem cells.
- Cellular immunotherapy. Promising research and results in CAR T-cell therapy are taking place in our innovative Bezos Family Immunotherapy Clinic at SCCA. The FDA recently approved two cellular immunotherapies for patients with certain types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and SCCA was one of the first centers in the nation to offer both.
- Clinical trials. With more than 300 clinical trials available to our patients, SCCA has one of the most active clinical trial programs in the world. Our researchers and physicians are committed to providing new hope for our patients every day.
