Cancer Care Program

The Institute for Cancer Care

When the threat of serious illness strikes, people become concerned about finding the best possible care. The Cancer Care Program at NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital brings together a group of specialists and medical services to provide comprehensive diagnosis and treatment so that patients may receive the ongoing care and services they need. At the same time, it provides patients and families the resources necessary to choose intelligently among diagnostic, treatment, and care options and to maintain lifestyles as close as possible to those that existed before the diagnosis.

The Program's panel of physicians includes specialists in all areas of internal medicine. When necessary, pain management specialists, physicians and therapists specializing in rehabilitation, psychologists, and social workers may also be consulted. Whatever their specialty, all of the members of the Program's multidisciplinary team are dedicated professionals who recognize that a person with cancer is still, first and foremost, a person, entitled to explanations, support, and counsel, along with the latest medical techniques and care.

Our team also includes a patient navigator who is dedicated to helping meet the practical needs of patients and caregivers by connecting them to resources, programs, and services of the American Cancer Society and our community partners. This navigator serves as a personal guide to patients and caregivers as they face the psychological, social, and financial challenges of dealing with cancer.

NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital is one of the few hospitals in Brooklyn to be accredited by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. Through a partnership the Sandra and Edward Meyer Cancer Center at Weill Cornell Medicine, our experts offer cutting-edge therapies and support services in an environment specially designed to nurture wellness.

Sophisticated cancer research depends on statistics derived from thousands of individual cases. Yet, each of these cases represents a single human being with a unique set of physical and psychological reactions to the disease. The Cancer Care Program at NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital provides a full spectrum of services, so that patients and their physicians have access to whatever specific care can best answer their medical and emotional needs.
