Individualized treatment plan for the whole person

We understand that cancer affects all aspects of your life. We deliver a comprehensive care plan to support you in body, mind and spirit. Using the best of long-established conventional cancer treatments combined with complementary therapies, we treat the whole person, not just the disease.

Seamless care under one roof

We help you fight cancer on all fronts. At Mission Hope Cancer Center you will have access to the latest technologies and cancer treatments, including surgeon offices, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, pain management, nutrition therapy, clinical research, oncology rehabilitation, mind-body medicine, and spiritual support—all in one location.

Expert medical team rallies itself around you

Our expert medical team consists of a diverse group of highly-skilled, compassionate doctors and adept clinicians who work together to deliver personalized treatment plans tailored to meet each patient’s unique needs. Our care team supports patients as we would a member of our own family. Our goal at Mission Hope Cancer Center is to provide a model for quality cancer care where our doctors – knowing patient history, family and treatment plan – treat the whole patient, not just the disease.

Education and empowerment

Our Oncology Nurse Navigator program puts you at the center of your care team by encouraging you to not only be involved but guide your treatment, support and survivorship decisions. We offer regular classes/programs on a variety of cancer topics, links to additional outside resources for all referral needs, individual consultations and guidance to give you the information you need to make the best-informed decisions about your care.

A network of support and hope

We understand that staying connected with others helps improve quality of life and restores hope. We offer patient-to-patient networking to help you connect with others who are in similar situations. Our goal is to provide you with sources of inspiration, encouragement and hope. Along with our team of committed Nurse Navigators, our on-line iThrive program reaches out every day to cancer survivors helping them stay happy and healthy. More and more, cancer patients are looking for ways to achieve victory over their disease without compromising their quality of life; here at Mission Hope we continue to challenge ourselves seeking new innovative ways to meet all our patients’ evolving needs and goals.

Mission Hope Cancer Center offers patients and their families access to all aspects of comprehensive, quality cancer care in one convenient location including medical and radiation oncology, selective oncologic subspecialists and surgeons, infusion center, imaging services, breast center, integrative health programs, clinical research, spiritual and social programs, cancer survivorship program, cancer rehabilitation program, cancer risk program, cancer data services, laboratory; along with essential cancer support services; nurse navigation, social work, dietitian, educational resource library and personal appearance center – all located within an inviting and healing environment.

Accredited as a Community Cancer Program by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer. We embrace a multidisciplinary approach to patient care and offer the latest in technology – true beam linear accelerator that delivers IMRT and IGRT, lab, pharmacy, PET/CT & CT scanners, digital mammography, breast ultrasounds and stereotactic biopsy equipment. We believe the Central Coast community deserves the best cancer care and state-of-the-art technology available today. Currently, cancer services in the area—such as radiation, chemotherapy, surgery, and others—are fragmented. Patients and their families have to travel all over Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties in order to receive basic treatment. We understand for cancer patients, frequent travel can be incredibly difficult, both physically and mentally, as well as a financial challenge for families.

Patient-centered care and optimal comfort is the impetus for Mission Hope Cancer Center.
