HHC is on the frontline when it comes to fighting cancer. Treatment is most effective when cancer is diagnosed in the earliest stages and HHC aggressively screens patients for colon, breast, prostate and cervical cancers to ensure early detection. This major cancer screening outreach has had a significant positive impact on the lives of New Yorkers.
Cancer treatment services are available in HHC facilities throughout the city and many offer the most outstanding services in their surrounding communities. For example, Queens Hospital Center is home to the Queens Cancer Center, the only comprehensive cancer care center in the borough of Queens offering a full complement of diagnostic and treatment services for patients coping with the disease. The Queens Cancer Center has cutting-edge technology and, including a new $1.5 million 64-slice CT scanner, the most sophisticated technology of its kind in the borough of Queens.
Top notch diagnostic equipment and exceptional cancer treatment services are also available at Bellevue Hospital Center, Coney Island Hospital, Jacobi Medical Center, Kings County, Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center and Woodhull Medical and Mental Health Center.
