Volunteers come to the OSUCCC – James for many reasons. Some are cancer survivors who wish to offer the gift of hope and inspiration to others. Some are simply interested in giving back to the community and helping where needed.

Each one of our volunteers — and there were more than 1,800 Medical Center volunteer in 2014! — is essential to the exceptional care we provide to our patients and the support we give our patients, caregivers and families.

We are always looking for individuals who are able to give their time, talents & energy to help us reach our goal of “creating a cancer-free world one person, one discovery at a time.”

NCI Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center for Prevention, Detection, and Treatment
Introduction

The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute strives to create a cancer-free world by integrating scientific research with excellence in education and patient-centered care, a strategy that leads to better methods of prevention, detection and treatment. Ohio State is one of only 41 National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers and one of only four centers funded by the NCI to conduct both phase I and phase II clinical trials. The NCI recently rated Ohio State’s cancer program as “exceptional,” the highest rating given by NCI survey teams. As the cancer program’s 210-bed adult patient-care component, The James is a “Top Hospital” as named by the Leapfrog Group and one of the top cancer hospitals in the nation as ranked by U.S.News & World Report.
