At NYC Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan we provide a highly-effective multidisciplinary approach to the care of cancer patients, providing comprehensive cancer screening, diagnostic, and treatment services.
Our dedicated team of specialized and highly trained clinicians is committed to providing compassionate, patient centered care that combines the latest advances in cancer treatment with state-of-the-art technology.
We assist patients in identifying their risk level by promoting health education and screenings in order to improve early diagnosis and treatment of the most common types of cancer. We believe that life-saving screenings, including mammograms, prostate cancer screenings, and colonoscopies, increase access to early intervention and treatment.
We are an established referral center for patients suffering from sickle cell disease. Our expertise in the area, along with our compassionate approach to care, makes us the choice hospital for patients impacted by this disease.
Specialized programs offer emotional and educational support through established peer group meetings for cancer patients, survivors, and family members. Our doctors and staff members host ongoing weekly support meetings for cancer patients and their families. In a special collaboration with the American Cancer Society (ACS), we provide cancer navigation support along with hosting regular ‘Look Good… Feel Better’ events for women who are currently undergoing treatment or have survived cancer.
