What does it mean to be an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center?

As of 2016, the NCI (National Cancer Institute) has recognized 69 cancer centers in the United States that “meet rigorous criteria for world-class, state-of-the-art programs in multidisciplinary cancer research.” According to the NCI, “These centers put significant resources into developing research programs, faculty, and facilities that will lead to better approaches to prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. The NCI designation not only recognizes excellence but opens doors to greater federal funding, information sharing, and resources.”

University of Colorado Hospital

Out of these 68 centers, 41 are recognized as "comprehensive" cancer care centers, which is the NCI's highest rating. To put this in perspective, there are approximately 1,500 cancer centers in the United States, putting these centers in the top 3% nationwide.

The University of Colorado Cancer Center is the only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in the state of Colorado. In fact, it is the only such center in the entire Rocky Mountain region.
