Cancer Institute

As a Seattle-area leader in diagnosis, treatment and recovery since 1932, the Swedish Cancer Institute (SCI) cancer care network offers services to help you fight cancer—and win. Our team includes a host of oncologists—doctors focused exclusively on the care and treatment of cancer, using medication, radiation and other therapies.

At our locations in and around the greater Seattle area, we work in a collaborative, multidisciplinary environment that focuses on the patient—not the disease. And even though we use some of the most advanced technologies and procedures, we also offer a wide range of complementary treatments and services that address your psychological, emotional and spiritual needs.

The Swedish Cancer Institute has a new weapon in the fight against cancer. It's called personalized medicine -- the biggest news in cancer treatment in years. Learn more.
