Welcome to Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., part of Johns Hopkins Medicine. We have a distinguished history of serving our community since 1890. Johns Hopkins experts provides multi-disciplinary cancer here at the Johns Hopkins Proton Center and the Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center.
Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. is home to the Johns Hopkins Proton Therapy Center. Easily accessible from three major airports, we care for patients from all over the world.
Our center has been carefully designed with a calm, inviting ambience. Our friendly care team works to help you, provide the treatment that you may need during your care journey and alleviate some of the stress that may come from having cancer.
Our center has three private treatment rooms, using special 360 degree gantries to deliver proton therapy. These gantries ensure that you do not have to move, and that treatment is fast and painless for most patients.
At Johns Hopkins, we are not just focused on the best treatment, we are researching innovative ways to cure cancer.
Your proton therapy physician and health care team meets with you during your time in treatment. We remain in contact with your other doctors, including as needed a medical oncologist, surgical oncologist, primary care physician and/or pediatrician.
Specifically visualizing the composition of each area of a tumor through the capability of dual-energy CT imaging gives our patients the most precise treatment possible.
Understanding the make-up of a tumor and the surrounding structures is critical to targeting tumors. Through 4D biomatrix MRI, we can now proactively plan for how to treat tumors that shift during treatment.
We focus on every aspect of pediatric care, from our dedicated team to a child-friendly environment. In collaboration with Children’s National Hospital, we are one of only a few dedicated proton therapy pediatric programs in the country.
Our dedicated pediatric unit provides a variety of support for you and your child in a patient-friendly space.
A milestone event, every patient rings this bell on the last day of treatment. It is our way to celebrate the successful completion of treatment with you.
Conveniently located near the proton therapy center, many patients and families take advantage of the tranquility of our large meditation garden to destress while at Sibley
