Located at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, SC, the Hollings Cancer Center is the largest academic cancer center in South Carolina. It is the state's only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer center and one of only 67 NCI centers in the U.S.
Founded in 1993 and named for former US Senator and South Carolina Governor Ernest "Fritz" Hollings, the cancer center serves a culturally and socio-economically diverse state whose populations experience unique and urgent disparities in cancer incidence and mortality.
As the state’s foremost cancer treatment and research center, Hollings unites more than 150 experts in treatment, research, education, prevention and control, and outreach to address South Carolina’s significant cancer problem.
The center’s resources extend throughout South Carolina via partnerships with other healthcare organizations ensuring that all patients in the state have access to our innovative and compassionate care.
Patients are at the center of everything Hollings does. For the 23,000 South Carolinians who will be diagnosed with cancer this year, the Hollings Cancer Center is leading the way in changing what is possible in cancer care.
The mission of the Hollings Cancer Center is to reduce the cancer burden in South Carolina through the highest quality care, innovative research, outstanding professional education, and statewide cancer prevention programs with a focus on reaching underserved populations.
