King Hussein Cancer CenterVerified
The King Hussein Cancer Center (KHCC) was established in 2001, honorably bearing the name of His Majesty the late King Hussein of Jordan.
KHCC stands as one of Jordan’s crown jewels and the pride of the Arab world. It is accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI) as a disease-specific cancer center, making it the first center in the developing world and only the sixth worldwide to earn such a distinction.
KHCC treats over 3500 new cancer patients every year from Jordan and the region. The Center was initially named Al-Amal center (hope center) founded in 1997 by the late King Hussein. In 2001, the center was renamed to the King Hussein Cancer Center in honor of the late King who died from cancer complications.
