There are thousands of cancer treatment centers across the United States, but only a select few receive a designation from the National Cancer Institute (NCI). MUSC Hollings Cancer Center is among this elite group - setting us apart as one of the nation's leading cancer centers. We’re the only cancer center in South Carolina to receive this distinction and one of fewer than 70 in the United States. View full list of NCI centers.

Our NCI designation means that:

  • MUSC Hollings Cancer Center is among the best in the nation in research
  • The latest discoveries for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer are happening here
  • Additional financial support for research in our fight against cancer
  • Enhanced ability to recruit distinguished researchers and clinical leaders

The Latest in Cancer Treatments

According to the NCI, designated cancer centers like Hollings are a major source of discovery of the nature of cancer and of the development of more effective approaches to cancer prevention, diagnosis and therapy.  Patients have access to the latest cancer clinical trials, many of which are only available at NCI-designated centers. Hollings currently has over 200 open clinical trials and has seen a 40 percent increase in participation since 2009.
