People come from all over the world to seek treatment at Moffitt Cancer Center because of the talented cancer physicians and their support staff, as well as state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. Because our mission is clear – to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer – we devote all of our resources to meeting those lofty goals, and consistently attract the best and brightest minds in medicine today for physician careers.
Since Moffitt welcomed its first patient in October of 1986, our physicians, researchers and staff have established a tradition of excellence and an unwavering quest to unlock the mysteries of cancer and its treatment. Our future as a world-class institution relies on this tradition. As one of 41 National Cancer Institute Comprehensive Cancer Care Centers in the country, we can tap into this elite network of medical minds, which carries everyone’s momentum forward in the search for a cure. We also house the Southeast’s largest Blood and Marrow Transplant Program. Our outpatient clinical programs record more than 328,300 visits each year.
Our interdisciplinary patient care is organized into programs that focus on specific types of cancer. In our 206-bed facility, we have 14 operating rooms and all other imaging capabilities and a radiation therapy department with seven linear accelerators.
Additionally, Moffitt embraces diversity. It is an essential component to our mission that we value, support and celebrate everyone’s uniqueness. We welcome people from all walks of life in our physician careers, so that our research into how cancer affects all races and genders can help give us a robust body of knowledge on the individual risk factors various people face.
Our cancer physicians, nurses, scientists, and staff bring a passion to their jobs each day, and believe that by working together, we can overcome this disease. We never give up and never stop believing that what we are doing matters – to our patients, their families, and to the world waiting for a cure.
