Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) brings together the leading research teams and cancer specialists of Fred Hutch, Seattle Childrens, and UW Medicine. One extraordinary group whose sole mission is the pursuit of better, longer, richer lives for our patients. SCCA's purpose is to provide state-of-the-art, patient and family centered care; support the conduct of cancer clinical research and education; enhance access to improved cancer interventions; and advance the standard of cancer care regionally and beyond.
Every individual at SCCA plays a unique role in supporting our mission. Our collective success hinges on each of us conducting ourselves in accord with a set of core values:
We are patient-centered. Everything we do must be linked to our ability to deliver better, safer outcomes for our patients.
We are innovative. We nurture an environment that fosters unconventional thinking, a passion for discovery, and the open-mindedness to invite discovery from unexpected places.
We are respectful. We are deeply respectful of our patients, their families, and each of our colleagues who serve them in so many different and important ways.
We are collaborative. We understand that asking for and offering help in how to do better is not just a right, but among our most important responsibilities.
We are agile. We cannot just be comfortable with change; we must embrace it as proof that we are making progress.
We are responsible. Because our work is focused on people's well-being, we approach it with the highest level of ethical, fiduciary, and environmental responsibility.
This is an extraordinary opportunity to lead disruptive continuous innovations in the fight against cancer.

The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance was incorporated in 1998 as a separate, jointly governed non-profit that included the cancer programs of three partners. Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is a cancer treatment center that unites doctors from Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center, University of Washington Medical Center, and Seattle Children’s. The purpose of this organization is to provide state-of the-art patient and family centered care; support the conduct of cancer clinical research and education; enhance access to improved cancer interventions; and advance the standard of cancer care regionally and beyond. The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is the only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center in the Northwest, and according to the National Cancer Data Base, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance patients in general have better survival rates than patients treated at other cancer treatment centers.
