The Cancer Centers draw on the traditions of innovation and excellence established by the scientific and clinical endeavors of the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center and the Weill Cornell Cancer Center of New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
The outstanding accomplishments of these centers in all areas of cancer research, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention are world-renowned.
The Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center is one of only two National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer centers in Manhattan. It is committed to eradicating cancer through research, education, and patient care. The Center also promotes interdisciplinary laboratory, clinical, and population-based research, and facilitates the application of this research to cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.
Weill Cornell Cancer Center brings together specialists in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer, and conducts a wide range of basic science and clinical research to help make the newest and most promising cancer treatments possible.
Through the collective and coordinated efforts of the NewYork-Presbyterian Cancer Centers, patients have access to a tremendous reservoir of oncology programs led by physicians, scientists, and other health professionals dedicated to developing and expanding their knowledge in the field.
In the past decade, there has been an explosion in the knowledge of how cancers develop, sustain themselves, and may be treated. As this information is translated into clinical successes, it provides encouragement. The improvements in what they can offer patients will come more quickly and be more potent in the years to come.
Many of the breakthroughs in understanding, treating, and preventing cancer will emerge from the research conducted at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia and New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell.
The linkage of these two outstanding cancer programs provides unprecedented opportunities for collaborative research, enhanced patient care, and progress in prevention. Guiding these efforts is concern for patients and their families.
The next decade is sure to see innovative and exciting approaches to cancer care and the New York-Presbyterian Cancer Centers will be at the forefront, providing the expertise to save lives, the resources to enhance recovery, and the compassion that underlies all that they can do toward their goal of conquering cancer.
New York-Presbyterian, The University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell, has been rated as the best hospital in New York City.
