Over 50 Years of Exceptional Science and Care
Montefiore Einstein Cancer Center has been at the forefront of innovative cancer prevention and treatments for 50 years. We are one of the first cancer centers in the country to bring clinical care and academic research together, and have been translating research discoveries into breakthrough treatments ever since. Today we are among the top 5% of National Cancer Institute NCI-designated cancer centers in the United States, according to U.S. News & World Report.
We have expertise in diagnosing and treating all cancer types, including those considered progressive or rare. Our specialists are renowned in their respective fields and include scientists, researchers, physicians, clinicians, oncologists, and psychosocial experts. We have over 320 cancer clinical trials in progress, which gives patients access to some of today’s most advanced treatments.
Our cancer center serves one of the most ethnically diverse populations in the nation. We treat over 4,000 patients annually from the Bronx, Hudson Valley, Westchester, New York City and beyond.
We’re recognized as a leader in the delivery of multidisciplinary, team-based cancer care, and proudly serve as an anchor in our vibrant and diverse urban communities. By delivering such personalized cancer treatment options, we consistently provide better treatments and better outcomes.
Our mission is to reduce the burden of cancer in the Bronx, the nation and beyond through exceptional cancer research, education and training, and community outreach and engagement, as well as through the delivery of compassionate care for all—including historically underrepresented and underserved communities that face heightened inequities of cancer and social determinants of health.
