The King Hussein Cancer Center (KHCC) is the only specialized cancer center in the Middle East treating both adult and pediatric patients. Founded in 1997, KHCC is a non-governmental, not-for-profit comprehensive center dedicated entirely to cancer care. It has a capacity of 148 beds and currently treats more than 2300 new patients per year.
The original name of KHCC was Al-Amal Cancer Center. In November 2002, their Royal Majesties King Abdullah and Queen Rania unveiled the center’s new name, King Hussein Cancer Center in recognition of the late King Hussein.
Being the only regional comprehensive cancer center, approximately 75% of patients seeking medical care at KHCC are from Jordan and 25% from neighboring countries in the Middle East.
The medical staff at KHCC was enriched by highly qualified and experienced oncologists who work diligently under the leadership of senior researcher and oncologist, Dr. Mahmoud Sarhan.
