At the St. Barnabas Hospital, we take pride in not only our clinical excellence, but in providing our patients and their families with compassionate, hands-on care. Our state-of-the-art facility combines advanced diagnostic and treatment modalities, with patient-friendly accommodations.
Our team of bilingual, board certified oncologists, radiologists, surgeons and nurses offers a multidisciplinary approach to helping patients throughout the course of their illness. Patients also have access to a range of support services that address their emotional and physical needs. For example, the Look Good…Feel Better program is intended to provide cancer patients with makeup and tips to make them look and feel better about themselves. Meanwhile, the SHARE program offers support for women with breast, metastatic breast and ovarian cancer, both in English and Spanish.
We also place a priority on working with patients on their quality of life after cancer treatment has ended. This includes following patients to ensure their overall well-being and state of health for years to come.
