City of Hope South Pasadena is a 22,000 square foot state-of-the-art outpatient cancer center which serves the San Gabriel Valley, San Fernando Valley and parts of greater Los Angeles.
 
Located on Fair Oaks Avenue in South Pasadena, California, the Cancer Center is staffed by nationally recognized physicians from City of Hope who provide expertise in the following areas :
 
  • Medical Oncology
  • Radiation Oncology 
  • Hematology
  • Surgical Oncology & Breast Surgery
  • Thoracic Surgery
  • Gynecologic Oncology
  • Neurosurgery
  • Urology, Urologic Oncology and Robotic Surgery
 
City of Hope South Pasadena is among the first in Los Angeles to offer RapidArc, a new advanced non-surgical treatment that destroys tumors. Using computerized image-guided technology, RapidArc conforms to the tumor, sparing healthy tissue and organs from radiation. In addition to its precision, RapidArc is up to 8 times faster than other advanced radiation therapies. Many treatments are as short as just a few minutes - giving patients more time to do the things they enjoy most.
 
In addition, with expertise in minimally invasive and robotic surgery, City of Hope South Pasadena surgeons provide patients with the latest treatment options that reduce recovery time and improve outcomes. Collaborating to discover, develop and implement innovative strategies for the prevention and treatment of cancer, our physicians bring nationally recognized expertise in cancer care and research to the local community.
