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 and surgeons.
