Traveling for Care?
Whether you're crossing the country or the globe, we make it easy to access world-class care at Johns Hopkins.
The name Johns Hopkins has become synonymous with excellence in research and patient care. Its science and medical programs earn more federal research dollars than any other medical institution in the country.
Since its opening in 1973, our Cancer Center has led the world in deciphering the mechanisms of cancer and new ways to treat it. The strength of our research and treatment programs was recognized early on by the National Cancer Institute, becoming one of the first to earn comprehensive cancer center status and recognition as a “Center of Excellence.”
One of only 41 cancer centers in the country designated by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as a Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center has active programs in clinical research, laboratory research, education, community outreach, and prevention and control. The Kimmel Cancer Center is the only Comprehensive Cancer Center in the state of Maryland. More on the NCI's Cancer Centers Program, including a locator map.

Patients who visit the Kimmel Cancer Center have access to some of the most innovative and advanced therapies in the world. Because Kimmel Cancer Center research scientists and clinicians work closely together, new drugs and treatments developed in the laboratory are quickly transferred to the clinical setting, offering patients constantly improved therapeutic options.
The Kimmel Cancer Center encompasses a wide spectrum of specialty programs for both adults and children coping with cancer, including bone marrow transplantation and new drug development. Additionally,those at high risk for breast, ovarian, colon and other cancers, may seek information about early detection, prevention, and genetic counseling through a comprehensive genetics service.
The Kimmel Cancer Center also offers complete family and patient services that include a Cancer Counseling Center, survivors and palliative care programs, and the 39 suite, Hackerman-Patz Patient and Family Pavilion for patients and their families traveling from out-of-town.
The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Building is our clinical care cancer facility and the Bunting Blaustein Cancer Research Building is our state-of-the-art cancer research and teaching building, both of which opened in 2000. In 2006, the Kimmel Cancer Center opened the Koch Cancer Research Building, which mirrors and connects to the Bunting Blaustein Building.
The Art of Healing program creates an environment with technology to heal the human body but create an environment that was nurturing and comforting to mend the human spirit. The result is a unique art and music program, including a collection of more than 122 pieces of museum-quality artwork placed throughout the Center as well as live music and dance performances.
