Patient Care Overview

Clinical Services

Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey in partnership with RWJBarnabas Health, provides state-of-the-art, compassionate cancer care for adults and children by a team of nationally recognized physicians in their field who have expertise in routine, rare and complex cancer cases. Individualized treatment plans help patients and their caregivers make appropriate decisions and approach their disease with confidence. Our physicians and nurse practitioners offer telemedicine visits for existing patients as well as new patient consults and second opinions.

Each multidisciplinary program focuses on a specific type of cancer and is led by an academic physician who is an expert in the cause and treatment of that disease. Our compassionate healthcare team includes medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists, nurse practitioners, oncology nurse navigators, research nurse clinicians, treatment nurses, pathologists, social workers, oncology education specialists, pharmacists, and clinical psychologists. Our nurse navigators are clinical experts who serve as a knowledgeable resource answering questions, providing guidance, coordinating care, and serving as an important member of the patient’s care team.

Through the transformation of laboratory discoveries into clinical practice, we target cancer with precision medicine, immunotherapy and clinical trials and provide the most advanced, comprehensive, and compassionate world-class cancer care to adults and children accomplished in partnership with RWJBarnabas Health.

As one of the nation's select few National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey is able to offer its patients access to clinical trials available only at such centers and is at the forefront of cancer research.
