Executive Compensation at City of Hope

When some people hear the words “City of Hope” they think of a cancer treatment center in California but there is so much more to the organization than what those words describe.  Specifically, there are four 501 (c) (3)’s: the main organization (City of Hope), the medical center (City of Hope National Medical Center) that provides hospitalization, the foundation (City of Hope Foundation) that provides physician services and the research institute (Beckman Research Institute) that does medical research.
