At Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), we are committed to serving our community.
By providing care throughout the greater Seattle area, and as a national and international center of excellence that advances the standard of cancer care globally, we know the quality of care we provide makes a lasting difference in our region.
SCCA’s community benefit work takes our aim to provide longer, better, richer lives for our patients and extends it to our whole community.
Our community benefit activities are informed by the the new SCCA 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), which provides us with a deeper understanding of the impact of cancer on our region. For our work to improve cancer-related population health outcomes in SCCA’s service area, we define our community as everyone in King, Pierce and Snohomish Counties. This three-county area is where most our patients live, where our recognition is highest and where we believe we can make some of our greatest impacts.
The SCCA 2019-2022 Community Benefit Strategic Implementation Plan is under development and will outline upcoming efforts to address the community’s cancer-related health needs.
