UCSF-John Muir Health Cancer Center in Walnut Creek

The UCSF-John Muir Health Jean and Ken Hofmann Cancer Center in Walnut Creek offers East Bay residents the full range of cancer care. As a patient, you can expect world-class treatment rooted in cutting-edge research and tailored to your specific needs.

Since 2018, UCSF Health and John Muir Health have been building a network to improve cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment for people in the East Bay. The network's first site, the UCSF-John Muir Health Cancer Center in Berkeley, opened in February 2020.
