New York Cancer & Blood Specialists (NYCBS), one of the leading oncology practices in the nation, has partnered with The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBCC), to create a new comprehensive cancer care program, The Brooklyn Cancer Center.

The milestone in cancer research and patient care was marked this week with the unveiling of the new state of the art center at 86 Fleet Place.

“NYCBS has bridged the gap for patients to receive high-quality cancer treatment close to home,” stated Jeff Vacirca, MD, CEO of NYCBS. “The Brooklyn Cancer Center will bring state-of-the-art facilities, increased capacity, and the architectural atmosphere aligns with our world-class care.”

TBCC is staffed by top-ranked physicians and is committed to providing expert care for patients with all types of cancer and blood disorders. Located in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn, patients not only find a unique path to treatment but also find comprehensive care in a state of the art center for cancer care.

“This partnership means the very best comprehensive care for cancer patients is available right here in Brooklyn. We say this a lot — you don’t have to go across the bridge for excellent care — but that statement has never been more true when it comes to the complete range of services The Brooklyn Cancer Center offers, now in a spectacular setting, just a few blocks from the hospital,” stated Gary G. Terrinoni, President and CEO of TBHC.
