By on October 29, 2019

A grand opening ceremony was held Oct. 24 at the City of Hope’s cancer treatment center in Upland.

The 25,000-square-foot facility offers medical oncology and infusion and has nine cancer specialists, 25 exam rooms, two procedure rooms and 23 infusion chairs, including two chairs in private rooms, according to a statement.

“Our goal at City of Hope is to bring new, research-driven treatment options closer to home for people afflicted with cancer and their families,” said Dr. Harlan Levine, president of strategy and business ventures at City of Hope, in a statement.

“We want to ensure patients have access to the premier care they deserve, especially as the cancer landscape grows increasingly complex as physician-scientists continue to make great strides to find improved, targeted therapies and cures for cancer.”

City of Hope is an independent research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases. Based in Duarte in the San Gabriel Valley, it’s also the anchor tenant of San Antonio Regional Hospital’s outpatient care center at 1100 San Bernardino Road in Upland.
