Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) offers a bold and innovative approach in the prevention, treatment, and cure of cancer. Combining the talents, expertise, and resources of three world-renowned institutions — Fred Hutch, Seattle Children's and UW Medicine — we are able to offer our patients unprecedented survival rates. Our collaborative, cross-disciplined approach makes us one of the groundbreaking healthcare organizations that consistently lead the world in discoveries and breakthroughs for treating and curing cancer.
We surround our patients with a remarkable team of scientists, researchers, doctors, nurses, social workers, clinicians, and therapists—dedicated professionals who care about our patients and their loved ones and who all share the same goal of offering the best possible outcome for better, longer, richer lives.
Singular focus. Better outcomes.
With a singular focus on cancer, SCCA offers the greatest possibility of successful cancer treatment by:
- Providing state-of-the-therapies and research
- Joining the leading research teams and cancer specialists of our partner organizations
- Providing a multi-disciplinary cancer care approach, including diagnostic, surgical, medical, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.
But perhaps the greatest patient benefit is our survivor rates: higher for almost every cancer type compared to patients treated at other medical centers.
Top quality cancer care requires the input of several specialists, including medical oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, and pathologists. At SCCA, over 200 cancer specialists work together in teams to ensure that your care is well-planned and coordinated—from the day you walk in to the day you walk out.
Unique alliance of world-class cancer centers
Doctors at regional cancer centers such as SCCA have access to all the latest developments and research in treating cancer. For SCCA doctors, that means the combined expertise of Fred Hutch, Seattle Children's and UW Medicine.
SCCA is the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer hospital in the Pacific Northwest. This coveted distinction is only awarded to hospitals that have an established track record of expertise and excellence and are recognized for advancing treatment to benefit other health care providers and the public.
For more than 10 consecutive years, SCCA/UWMC has ranked in the Top 10 for adult cancer care.
U.S. News & World Report analyzed over 5,000 hospitals for adult and pediatric care to find the best in the nation, based on critical criteria, patient outcomes, and survey results from more than 140,000 physicians.
Locally, more than 65 SCCA doctors also have been recognized in Seattle Magazine and Seattle Met magazine’s Top Doctors lists.
