Learn More about this Cancer Center

The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, which is home to the Simmons Cancer Center, was founded in 1943 as Southwestern Medical College, affiliated with Baylor University. In 1949, the college was transferred to the University of Texas and became a state medical school. The current campus was first occupied by the newly-renamed University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in 1955. The medical center’s present name was adopted in 2011.

The Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center was founded in 1988 with an initial grant of $41 million contributed by Dallas philanthropists Harold and Annette Simmons. The continuing support of Mr. and Mrs. Simmons and the Harold Simmons Foundation have made possible numerous clinical and research efforts, as well as an endowed chair in clinical oncology.

The Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center located in Dallas, Texas, is north Texas’s only National Cancer Institute designated Cancer Center, a distinction awarded to only 26 cancer centers nationwide. The Simmons Center focuses exclusively on cancer, combining forward-thinking approaches to patient care with an array of innovative research projects.

Simmons Cancer Center’s thirteen cancer programs, which include cancer genetics, lung cancer and radiation oncology, are funded by a combination of grants from federal and private foundations, such as the National Cancer Institute, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Lance Armstrong Foundation, as well as from individual donors.
