City of Hope is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of people with cancer, diabetes and other serious illnesses. Our mission is to transform the future of health care by turning science into a practical benefit, hope into reality. We accomplish this by providing outstanding care, conducting innovative research and offering vital education programs focused on eliminating these diseases.
City of Hope is not only part of a global health-care network, but we are also located in one of the most diverse communities in the world. To ensure that our employees reflect our community and patient diversity, we are engaged in a variety of recruitment and employee development activities. City of Hope strives to make everyone feel welcome, respected and valued as a member of our community.
At City of Hope, our professional practice model is role-based nursing, with a shared-governance model of leadership. We’re committed to providing opportunities for professional nurses to expand their skills and expertise, and practice at the highest levels of their licensure. With low nurse-to-patient ratios and initiatives like nursing sensitive outcome measures implemented across all units, our focus on quality is unsurpassed.
Our nurses foster close connections with those they care for, as well as those they care with. In an environment where every moment counts, you’re invited to share in the moments of compassion and healing that mean everything to our patients.
Opportunities in Clinical Research are also available at City of Hope. Our multidisciplinary teams of basic, clinical and population science investigators share a passion for pursuing new ideas. From our exhaustive survivorship studies, outcomes research and outreach to under-served and under-examined ethnic communities to our ambitious use of clinical trials, we continually seek new and smarter ways to advance science for the health of people everywhere.
I have been working at City of Hope full-time (More than 10 years)
I’ve been at City of Hope for 20 years now and I am proud to say that I work at one of the best cancer centers in the world! City of Hope has excelled in the clinical and research arena. In my tenure at City of Hope, I’ve experienced compassion for their patients and employees. For this, I am very proud and grateful to be part of the City of Hope family.
I don't have any "Cons". I can't express how positive City of Hope has been for me on a professional level, but also in a personal level as I've had family members as patients. City of Hope has been a blessing.
