Stanford Health Care's new outpatient Cancer Center will provide convenient access to the latest in cancer care and other complementary practices. Operated in partnership with the local medical community, SHC's newest location will offer access to clinical trials and Stanford's National Cancer Institute-designated cancer program.
Stanford's Cancer Institute is one of only two NCI-designated Cancer Centers in the Bay Area. The NCI recognizes centers that meet rigorous criteria for world-class, state-of-the-art programs in multidisciplinary cancer research. In addition, Stanford is one of the founding members of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), an alliance of 21 of the world's leading cancer centers dedicated to improving the quality and effectiveness of care provided to cancer patients. Stanford is consistently recognized as one of the top hospitals in America for cancer care, according to US News & World Report.
Located in San Jose near the Los Gatos border, the existing four-story facility comprises 70,000 square feet. Expected to begin serving patients in 2015, it will be SHC's most comprehensive medical facility outside of Stanford Health Care in Palo Alto and the Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center in Redwood City.
