New patient orientation
We know a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. That's why we are here to guide and support you at every step of the way.
Your team at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center is built around you and your needs, devoted to giving you the best possible care and support, before, during and after your treatment.
From the moment you check in, our caring staff will answer your questions. We will make sure you are comfortable finding your way around the clinic. Our specialists will help you with your medical records, insurance matters, financial assistance, emotional support and other services.
Following the merger of long-time partners, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, the organization was renamed to Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center. We are an independent, nonprofit organization that also serves as UW Medicine's cancer program.
