About Us

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center unites innovative research and compassionate care to prevent and eliminate cancer and infectious disease. We’re driven by the urgency of our patients, the hope of our community and our passion for discovery to pursue scientific breakthroughs and healthier lives for every person in every community. 

Our values are grounded in and expressed through the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Our mission is directly tied to the humanity, dignity, and inherent value of each employee, patient, community member, and supporter. Our actions are driven by the commitments expressed in our values: Collaboration, Compassion, Determination, Excellence, Innovation, Integrity, and Respect. 

In addition to bringing Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and Fred Hutch together as a single organization, we’ve strengthened our relationship with UW Medicine. While Fred Hutch is an independent, nonprofit organization, it will now also serve as the cancer program for UW Medicine. This unique relationship allows for enhanced care coordination with one of the world's leading integrated health systems.
