NCI-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center
At Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center, we believe that where patients first seek cancer care is important.
The Simmons Cancer Center is the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in North Texas and one of just 47 NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers in the nation. The Center includes 13 major cancer care programs, and its education and training programs support and develop the next generation of cancer researchers and clinicians. In addition, Simmons Cancer Center is among only 30 U.S. cancer research centers to be designated by the NCI as a National Clinical Trials Network Lead Academic Participating Site.
NCI comprehensive designation is the gold standard for cancer programs. It reflects our promise – and ability – to deliver the best cancer care available today and discover new treatments that will lead to the best cancer care of tomorrow.
