Amplify the Impact

The Behring Pavilion, home to the UCSF-John Muir Health Jean and Ken Hofmann Cancer Center, is the central HUB for an integrated network of cancer care sites throughout the East Bay, including Berkeley, Brentwood, Concord, San Ramon, and Vallejo.

NOW is the Time for Revolutionizing Cancer Care

Diagnosis rates have consistently increased in the greater Bay Area during the past decade; however, in a post-pandemic society, the number of people annually diagnosed with cancer will increase even more sharply with the addition of later-stage disease presentations that have been unexamined during shelter-in-place mandates.

This phenomenon of "delayed diagnosis" is already impacting oncology service providers across the region, described by oncology specialists as "significant and disturbing." 

NOW is the absolute right time to meet this rapidly rising disease rate and begin a new era of world-class, cohesive care in Walnut Creek to help those loved ones and neighbors who will face complex and unique cancer diagnoses.

In partnership with UCSF, John Muir Health is the very best of world-class cancer care to transform and improve the fragmented protocol for positive patient experiences. 

Right Here. Right Now.
