Community Conversation with City of Hope Orange County on COVID-19 and Cancer Care
COVID-19 has impacted every business, fundamentally changed the way we think about the world, and illustrated the importance of having world-class medical care close to home.
Join Annette M. Walker, M.H.A., president of City of Hope Orange County, and Tanya Siddiqi, M.D., associate clinical professor and accomplished hematologist, for a virtual community conversation, Tuesday, June 30, 10 - 10:45 a.m., to learn about City of Hope’s response to COVID-19 and its vision for highly specialized cancer care in Orange County. Bryan Starr, president and CEO of the Greater Irvine Chamber, will provide an introduction to the virtual event.
Walker will provide an update on City of Hope’s plans to invest $1 billion to develop and operate a world-class cancer campus of the future at FivePoint Gateway in Irvine. City of Hope recently closed the sale of 11 acres of land and a 190,000-square-foot building from partner FivePoint.
The state-of-the-art campus—Orange County’s only specialty hospital exclusively dedicated to treating and curing cancer, opening in 2025—will offer:
- Highly specialized cancer care
- Phase I to III clinical trials
- Precision medicine and early detection
A Zoom link will be emailed to registrants by June 29. For information or to submit questions in advance, contact Kelsey Dalton.
City of Hope’s expansion into Orange County is in response to a pressing community need. In January, City of Hope opened its Newport Beach location, the first phase of the expansion.
