No two cancer cases are exactly the same. And there’s one place that truly understands that. Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health is the region’s only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. The physicians at UC San Diego Health not only provide personalized care with better outcomes, they set treatment standards nationwide for more than 200 types of cancer, including, most importantly, yours.
Our cancer services were also ranked among the nation's best by U.S. News & World Report in 2020.
San Diego's only Comprehensive Cancer Center
As a NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, we hold the highest possible rating for a U.S. cancer center. This designation is reserved for centers with experts in every medical subspecialty, pushing boundaries to improve approaches for preventing, diagnosing and treating cancers.
In simple terms, these federally recognized centers save lives. Studies repeatedly show that patients seen at NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers do better, on average.
Expert, personalized cancer care
Your cancer is unique -- genetically, molecularly and immunologically and because you have your own concerns, instincts and priorities. The doctors and nurses at UC San Diego Health recognize that the best cancer care goes beyond delivering the most advanced treatments, it means customizing care by listening, supporting and understanding what is important to you. You benefit by having a team of doctors who are true experts in their fields and you also benefit from a hands-on, empathetic approach.
Treatment and support for the whole patient
A cancer diagnosis can affect you in body, mind and spirit -- and not just you but also your family and loved ones. As a truly Comprehensive Cancer Center, we recognize this and offer a spectrum of services to support you and your loved ones throughout your cancer journey. Most of our support services are free.
