Moffitt Cancer Center has made a lasting commitment to the prevention and cure of cancer, working tirelessly in the areas of patient care, research and education to advance one step further in fighting this disease.
Moffitt’s impact on cancer research spans basic science, prevention and clinical research with a focus on translating discoveries into better care. Moffitt is proud to be one of only 45 National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated cancer centers in the country and the only one based in Florida. NCI designation is the highest recognition of quality cancer research spanning population, basic and translational sciences.
Tradition of Excellence
Since the first patient admission in October 1986, Moffitt physicians, scientists and staff members have worked together to establish a tradition of excellence offered in an atmosphere characterized by kindness, caring and hope. The Cancer Center’s future growth in clinical care and research rests firmly on this tradition and makes possible the changes ahead.

It includes private patient rooms, the Southeast’s largest Blood and Marrow Transplant Program, outpatient treatment programs that record more than 320,500 visits a year, the Moffitt Research Center, Moffitt Cancer Center at International Plaza and the Lifetime Cancer Screening & Prevention Center.
