The region's only NCI-designated cancer center

The University of Colorado Cancer Center at UCH is one of only 41 NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the nation and is the only such center within an 850-mile radius of the Denver area.

What does this mean? It means our patients gain the benefit of groundbreaking research and clinical trials and providing access to those trials to all of the communities we serve. And, of course, it means they get exemplary patient care. Our 5-year cancer outcomes far outpace state averages as well as those of many other cancer centers in the U.S.

We're bringing access to quality cancer care to Coloradans in other parts of the state. Learn about our Community Engagement program.
