Why Johns Hopkins: Experience our Difference

The Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center was one of the first to be recognized by the National Cancer Institute as a “Center of Excellence.” It’s important to us that our patients recognize why. 

  • We offer far more than standard-of-care treatment. For starters, we use advanced tools to accurately diagnose your disease—many of which were pioneered in our clinician-scientists’ laboratories. Then, after taking into consideration family history, genetics, and lifestyle preferences, we present you with the best treatment options based on your individual disease and circumstances. At Johns Hopkins, our multidisciplinary cancer clinics combine the very best resources and specialists for a highly coordinated experience that delivers exceptional care while allowing you to conserve time and energy. 
  • We also conduct cutting-edge clinical trials. For patients who qualify and are interested, this may mean a new treatment option that can lead to longer survival time and better quality of life. Clinical trials also provide the promise of new therapies to all patients in the future, as many of our innovations become our standards of care. During and after treatment, we offer support services so that you aren’t alone in navigating cancer, survivorship, and their related issues. 
  • What we do here extends far beyond the reaches of our own campus. Our medical experts frequently consult on breast cancer cases in our local community and throughout the world, advising providers how best to care for a patient and her cancer.
