Why Your Support is Important
A world leader in cancer treatment, research and education, UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center is one of just 41 National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the nation: the only one in the San Diego region. While cancer is the second leading cause of death for Americans, it is the leading cause for San Diegans. As our region’s population grows and ages, the new Hospital for Cancer Care will help meet the needs of San Diego’s expanding community for years to come.
About The Hospital for Cancer Care
The Hospital for Cancer Care will provide expanded delivery of clinical care for patients with cancer through the addition of 108 inpatient beds. Situated on the same campus as Moores Cancer Center, this facility allows for inpatient clinical treatment giving patients unparalleled access to a broad array of treatments and specialists all at one place. An integral part of UC San Diego Health System, the “cancer campus” serves patients with bench-to-bedside medicine and helps to usher in a new era of personalized medicine to San Diego.
Your support today impacts our mission for providing excellence in research and cancer care at Moores Cancer Center.
The Spark Gala benefits Moores Cancer Center and the Hospital for Cancer Care through the UC San Diego Foundation, a 501c3 not-for-profit corporation.
