Cancer Programs and Services

Several components contribute to the healing environment at The Cancer Centers:

  • Our Psychosocial Support and Education Programs are among the most extensive in the state. Both individual and group counseling, in person and by phone, is available for patients and their advocates. We also provide stimulating and relevant lecture programs for our patients and members of the community on an ongoing basis.

  • Our board-certified oncologists and subspecialists have extensive training and credentials from prestigious facilities across the country, bringing to Saint Barnabas the best our country has to offer for the clinical research, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

  • Results of surveys on both inpatient and outpatient oncology services attest to a consistently high level of patient satisfaction.

  • Quality nursing care is an integral part of the recovery and healing process. To maximize each patient’s care during hospitalization, dedicated patient floors have been assigned to medical oncology, urology, orthopedics, pediatrics, surgery and women’s surgical diseases. Saint Barnabas is also one of the few institutions in New Jersey to have a dedicated neurosurgical intensive care unit.

  • Individuals seeking care at Saint Barnabas can be assured of finding a full range of cancer and ancillary services. Our centers of excellence include our Gynecologic Cancer and Pelvic Surgery Center, Valerie Fund Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, The Lung Cancer Institute and Breast Center for outpatient services related to breast health, such as mammograms, breast education, and some outpatient surgical procedures. Other highly specialized services include Radiation Oncology, Cancer Genetics Counseling Service, and Integrative Medicine (Alternative and Complementary Medicine) services.

  • Saint Barnabas is committed to oncology clinical research. For information on the clinical trials taking place at Saint Barnabas Medical Center, please visit Research/Clinical Trials.
