The Hollings Cancer Center is led by a team of renowned physicians, researchers and administrators who have trained and served in prominent positions at some of the country’s top cancer centers and academic medical institutions. Hollings also benefits from external committees comprised of leaders in the scientific, business, government and lay communities. Together, these teams are charged with establishing the Hollings Cancer Center as one of the country’s top centers for cancer care.
The Hollings Cancer Center was formally established in 1993 and named for former U.S. Senator and South Carolina Governor Ernest "Fritz" Hollings, without whose support the formation and ongoing success of the Center would not have been possible. The Hollings Cancer Center continues to honor Senator Hollings’ legacy of public service, serving our culturally and socio-economically diverse state.
