Fund A Need Challenge
A portion of the proceeds from the Mission Hospital Gala will support the
Mission Cancer Institute.
A Growing Need
In response to growing community need, Mission Hospital is establishing
the Mission Cancer Institute. This innovative and comprehensive institute
will provide our community with best-in-class access to the highest quality
cancer care focusing on the most prevalent forms of cancer in our community,
including: brain/central nervous system, breast, colorectal, gynecologic,
head and neck, lung, melanoma, thoracic and urologic.
Significant Need Creates Great Opportunity
Our vision is to create a world-class Cancer Institute with superior physicians
and clinicians to provide south Orange County with the highest quality
cancer care. Due to a lack of programs and services, 62% of local patients
currently leave the south Orange County area for cancer treatment.
The Mission Cancer Institute will unite all cancer services in one inclusive,
comprehensive program, significantly improving the patient experience.
Our cancer care will encompass the emotional, physical and psychological
aspects of cancer treatment. These thorough support services greatly benefit
patients during and after treatment and are an important component of
mind, body and spiritual care.
Our commitment to comprehensive care includes industry-leading support
services as well as state-of-the-art treatment options. This superior
approach will offer nurse navigators, genetic counselors, support group
leaders and exercise coordinators in addition to the patient's oncologists
