The USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center is a cancer center owned and operated by University of Southern California (USC) via its Keck School of Medicine.

Kenneth True Norris Jr. provided the money to build the hospital after voters rejected a bond offering proposed by USC and Los Angeles County;[2] the hospital opened in 1983.[3][4]

Tenet Healthcare acquired the center in 2003 and sold it, along with Keck Hospital of USC, to USC in 2009 for $275 million after three years of litigation between the parties.[1]
