Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and
Seattle Children’s for oncology-related patient-care services. This alliance brings leading-edge medical discoveries to the patient as quickly as possible.
SCCA unites UW doctors, researchers and other healthcare professionals working at the partner organizations to form a world-class treatment center that provides advanced therapies and clinical studies for cancers and other blood disorders.
