Revolutionizing Cancer Care

In Contra Costa alone, more than 12,100 people are annually diagnosed with new cancers, not including those facing serious metastatic disease.

Revolutionizing Cancer Care

John Muir Health's purpose in building an advanced Cancer Center is not just an evolution of cancer care; this vision is a revolution of how John Muir Health works in strategic and integrated ways, collaborating with UCSF Health to bring the best medical care possible to families, friends, and colleagues who battle against cancer. 

Despite this past year's urgent need to shelter in place and socially distance as imperatives in battling the COVID-19 pandemic, Cancer did not quarantine! Symptoms were diagnosed, scans were ordered, tests were performed, and families gathered as John Muir Health doctors informed patients of new and/or recurring oncology diseases. 

Cancer did not wait, and we won't either. John Muir Health is creating an integrated Cancer Network that will change the way regional oncology patients receive leading-edge treatment and holistic medical care. 

Close to Home...Far from Ordinary

Patients visiting the new UCSF-John Muir Health Cancer Center will experience the most advanced screening, treatment, prevention, survivorship services, and clinical trials available. UCSF's research fortitude will complement the world-class cancer care that John Muir Health physicians and staff already provide. 

Central to the development of a world-class Cancer Center is offering comprehensive oncology services, including radiation-oncology treatments, an infusion center, genetic counseling, nurse navigators, support services, and additional diagnostic and treatment services in a patient-centered environment. East Bay patients will benefit from the coordinated expertise of specialists from both health systems, including premier genetic and international precision medicine, extensive and holistic support networks, and compassionate personalized cancer services, without ever having to cross a bridge.

Patients will be offered leading-edge services in a therapeutic environment...close to home, where the support of friends and family can assist in the integral healing process.
