New York Cancer & Blood Specialists (NYCBS) and independent community hospital The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC) have partnered for the construction of a new comprehensive cancer care facility, The Brooklyn Cancer Center.

NYCBS will get access to OneOncology technology, integration support, and capital and provide access to oncology care, including clinical trial research across Brooklyn.

OneOncology, which is a national partnership of independent, community oncology practices, consists of six community oncology practices representing more than 400 providers practicing at nearly 170 sites of care across the US.

OneOncology CEO Jeff Patton said: “A key principle of OneOncology is flexibility for partner practices.

“Dr Vacirca and his team are able to tap OneOncology services to form a strong hospital partnership that will fuel the practice’s growth while bringing comprehensive cancer care services to Brooklyn residents.”

To be located at 523 Fulton Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn, The Brooklyn Cancer Center is slated for completion during the fourth quarter of this year.

Physicians currently at TBHC will join NYCBS and continue practicing at new centre at the hospital’s location in Fort Greene/Downtown Brooklyn.

With the partnership, NYCBS will be able to improve cancer care services for patients in Brooklyn across the entire continuum of cancer care.

New York Cancer & Blood Specialists CEO Jeff Vacirca said: “The Brooklyn Cancer Center will bring the highest level of cancer care to the residents of Brooklyn.

“By partnering with The Brooklyn Hospital Center, patients will have access to the latest in cancer treatments and the greatest physicians.”
