Roswell Park Unveils New Name, Logo and Mission

Tuesday, January 2, 2018 - 9:13am
Candace Johnson, PhD, President & CEO, talks about "the healing power of hope" at Roswell Park.

This New Year marks the 120th anniversary of Roswell Park’s founding, so it’s the perfect time to announce some exciting changes:

  • Beginning this month, we have a new name: Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. The change better reflects our status as one of only 51 comprehensive cancer centers in the United States — and the only one in New York State outside of Manhattan.
  • Our new logo represents the universal hope at the heart of Wish Field, the centerpiece sculpture in the Scott Bieler Clinical Sciences Center created by Shasti O’Leary Soudant, a celebrated artist who is also a cancer survivor.
  • Our new mission and vision statement defines, with strength and clarity,  why Roswell Park exists. We have one goal — to wipe cancer off the face of the earth.

Learn more from the video above. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating as we turn the page for a bright new future.
