The right cancer care—right near home
We bring together top-rated cancer specialists, state-of-the-art technology, leading-edge clinical trials and a full range of support programs so you can receive the coordinated care you need, right in your community.

Our approach

Complex conditions like cancer require careful coordination between your cancer specialists and other physicians involved in your care. Our leading cancer specialists are right in your community and are connected with local cardiologists, endocrinologists, and other experienced specialists so you receive coordinated care for your cancer and any other condition you may have. Our cancer specialists are also connected to Northwell Health hospitals, imaging centers and laboratories, so your care team has your medical information at their fingertips.

Our board-certified, fellowship-trained and subspecialized cancer specialists—including medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, pathologists, radiologists—as well as oncology nurses, social workers, nutritionists and cancer genetic counselors, work as part of a multidisciplinary team to diagnose and treat your cancer. Together, we develop an individualized treatment plan to achieve the best possible outcome for you.

Combining innovative technology and expertise

We offer leading-edge technology, as well as the brains behind the technology. Specializing in the full range of state-of-the-art radiation therapy and minimally invasive surgical techniques, including robotic surgery, our highly trained radiation oncologists and surgeons have every imaginable option to choose from. Yet, technology is only as effective as the expertise of the clinicians who employ it. Our experts have years of experience, training and knowledge to select the most appropriate treatment option for you so you have the best chance at a successful outcome.

We are helping to discover innovative new cancer therapies and treatments

You also have access to clinical trials, including studies initiated by our physicians and those offered by organizations affiliated with the National Cancer Institute.
