Overview

The Division of Hematology and Medical Oncology is an integral part of the centers that make up the Northwell Health Cancer Institute. Our full-time oncologists and hematologists are patient-oriented and collaborate with cancer specialists in surgery, radiation oncology, pathology, radiology, and supportive care across the health system.

As investigators, faculty participate in national federal and pharmaceutical clinical studies, ranging from fundamental cellular investigations to the latest cutting-edge translational and clinical research. As educators, they train tomorrow’s generation of oncologists and hematologists through their academic activities at the Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine.

The division’s expert medical oncologists and hematologists are leaders in emerging chemotherapy and immunotherapy therapy treatments as well as hormonal and biological therapies. They ensure that each patient receives the most effective chemotherapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy, and/or targeted treatments available, including access to the latest clinical trials. Patients have access to nurse navigators, oncology certified nurses, oncology social workers, and oncology nutritionists, who help to coordinate treatment and offer a broad range of support services and programs.

Clinical services

Our services include a dedicated inpatient leukemia unit at North Shore University Hospital and Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy-accredited adult bone marrow and stem cell transplant programs. Our oncology nurse navigators coordinate overall patient care. Our patients benefit from multidisciplinary treatment planning with experts who offer the best treatment options. The division provides patient-centered services such as cancer genetic counseling, social workers, as well as nutrition counseling and a patient education center.
