William S. Dalton,
As part of an elite group of National Cancer Institute (NCI) Comprehensive Cancer Centers, Moffitt focuses on the development of early stage translational research aimed at the rapid translation of scientific discoveries to benefit patient care.
Since the first patient admission in October 1986, Moffitt physicians, scientists and staff members have worked together to establish a tradition of excellence offered in an atmosphere characterized by kindness, caring and hope. The Cancer Center's future growth in clinical care and research rests firmly on this tradition and makes possible the changes ahead.
The mission of Moffitt Cancer Center is to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer.
Moffitt’s vision is "to be the leader in scientific discovery and translation into compassionate care, cures, and prevention of cancer for our community and the world." As it grows to fulfill its mission, the Cancer Center will continue to be distinguished by its compassionate and effective patient care.

Moffitt Cancer Center is a not-for-profit institution. It includes private patient rooms, the Southeast’s largest Blood and Marrow Transplant Program, outpatient treatment programs that record more than 320,500 visits a year, the Moffitt Research Center, Moffitt Cancer Center at International Plaza and the Lifetime Cancer Screening & Prevention Center.
In 2003, Moffitt opened its doors to the Muriel Rothman Building (Moffitt Clinic) and Vincent A. Stabile Research Building. These two buildings dramatically increased the existing research and outpatient clinical space to better serve our patients.
