The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital (The James)
Who We Are: At the OSUCCC–James, we strive to create a cancer-free world, one person, one discovery at a time, by blending scientific research with excellence in education and patient-centered care–a strategy that leads to better methods of prevention, detection and treatment. The OSUCCC–James is one of only 53 comprehensive cancer centers as designated by the National Cancer Institute, a designation we have maintained through competitive renewal since 1976. As the cancer program’s 356-bed adult patient-care component, the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute is ranked among America’s Best Hospitals for cancer care by U.S. News & World Report.
What We Do: Working together and utilizing state-of-the-art facilities and technology, clinicians and researchers at the OSUCCC–James are speeding the development and delivery of targeted treatments for each patient’s unique cancer. Cancer is no longer defined solely by stage and location, but rather by its biologic makeup. Hence, there is no routine cancer; it is different in each patient and requires individualized treatment for optimal outcomes.
Why We're Important: The OSUCCC–James is vitally important for people not only in central Ohio but around the world, serving as a global destination of choice for patients with cancer and their families who turn to us for help and hope during some of the most difficult times of their lives. Patients from all 50 U.S. states and 85 countries have put their trust in the science-based care provided by our more than 360 cancer researchers and over 200 cancer subspecialists who collaborate to provide the best possible care tailored to each patient’s medical needs.
How We Impact the Community: The OSUCCC–James impacts the local and global communities by providing an outstanding source of sophisticated cancer care that leads to better patient outcomes, fewer side effects, enhanced survivorship and improved quality of life. Many of our patients may qualify for one or more of the hundreds of research-based clinical trials we manage that offer the latest treatments, some of which are available nowhere else. We are also at the forefront of immuno-oncology, which harnesses the body’s immune system to better combat cancer–a discipline widely considered to be the next frontier in cancer care.
How You Can Help: Your support is crucial to ensuring that the lifesaving work of our world-renowned researchers, oncologists, advanced practice professionals, nurses and allied medical personnel can continue unimpeded at the OSUCCC–James. These dedicated individuals collaborate daily to provide precision cancer care that propels us forward in our shared journey toward a cancer-free world.
