If you are concerned that your patient may have a cancer diagnosis, then the Johns Hopkins Cancer Diagnostic and Treatment Planning Center can help.

Why Johns Hopkins

Patients who visit the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins have access to some of the most innovative and advanced therapies in the world. Because Kimmel Cancer Center clinicians and research scientists work closely together, new drugs and treatments developed in the laboratory are quickly transferred to the clinical setting, offering patients cutting edge therapeutic options.

The Kimmel Cancer Center has a wide spectrum of programs, including bone marrow transplantation (BMT), new drug development, the Bloomberg~Kimmel Institute of Cancer Immunotherapy, and Proton Therapy Center. Additionally, those at high risk for developing breast, ovarian, colon and other cancers, may seek information about early detection, prevention and genetic counseling through a comprehensive genetics service.

We also offers complete Patient and Family Services that include counseling services, survivors and palliative care programs, and the Hackerman-Patz Patient and Family Pavilion for patients traveling from out-of-town to receive treatment.

The Kimmel Cancer Center’s commitment to excellence in patient care and research is enhanced by our dedicated facilities, including the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Building and Skip Viragh Outpatient Cancer Building, our clinical care facilities; and the Bunting Blaustein and David H. Koch Cancer Research Buildings, home to our strong research and teaching programs. These dedicated efforts expand to our surrounding communities with the Kimmel Cancer Center at Bayview, Green Spring Station, Sibley Memorial Hospital and Suburban Hospital.
