Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) brings together the leading research teams and cancer specialists of Fred Hutch, Seattle Children’s, and UW Medicine.

Every individual at SCCA plays a unique role in supporting our mission. Our collective success hinges on each of us conducting ourselves in accord with a set of core values:

  • We are patient-centered. Everything we do must be linked to our ability to deliver better, safer outcomes for our patients.
  • We are innovative. We nurture an environment that fosters unconventional thinking, a passion for discovery, and the open-mindedness to invite discovery from unexpected places.
  • We are respectful. We are deeply respectful of our patients, their families, and each of our colleagues who serve them in so many different and important ways.
  • We are collaborative. We understand that asking for and offering help in how to do better is not just a right, but among our most important responsibilities.
  • We are agile. We cannot just be comfortable with change; we must embrace it as proof that we are making progress.
  • We are responsible. Because our work is focused on people's well-being, we approach it with the highest level of ethical, fiduciary, and environmental responsibility.

This is an extraordinary opportunity to lead disruptive continuous innovations in the fight against cancer.
