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 Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell.
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.
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.
What sets the Northwell Health Cancer Institute apart from those of other cancer programs? Innovative methods that keep us at the forefront of cancer care, delivered with heartfelt compassion. As one of the largest cancer programs in the New York metropolitan area, we deliver exceptional care for virtually every type of cancer.
At the Northwell Health Cancer Institute, comprehensive patient care is the focal point and individualized treatment plans are the standard.
Multidisciplinary treatment regimens, highly specialized techniques, and clinical research advances enable our patients to receive the highest quality of cancer care possible — all within a single healthcare system.
