About Us

About East Texas’ advanced, compassionate cancer care

Founded in 1989 under the name Tyler Hematology-Oncology, our team of highly credentialed and experienced oncologists has earned a reputation as an authority on cancer care in East Texas. On Aug. 26, 2019, HOPE Cancer Center of East Texas became UT Health East Texas HOPE Cancer Center, owned and operated by UT Health North Campus Tyler. Our Tyler, Henderson and Jacksonville locations operate as departments of UT Health North Campus Tyler. And, our name reflects our focus, hope, as well as our longstanding and ongoing commitment to providing the highest-quality care for people with cancer and blood disorders.

Cancer is a multifaceted disease, and treating cancer means fighting it on all fronts. That’s why UT Health East Texas HOPE Cancer Center coordinates all aspects of your care and even goes above and beyond in its role as the “quarterback” of your cancer treatment. We provide prompt and understandable reports to your doctor. We also schedule your visits with other specialists and handle the associated responsibilities — such as collecting reports, results and records — for accuracy, speed and ease.
