Princeton Health Expands Access to Cancer Care
Patients with cancer will have greater access to coordinated, expert care through a new oncology suite opened today by Penn Medicine Princeton Health in the Medical Arts Pavilion, adjacent to Princeton Medical Center (PMC).
The new suite, which houses medical and surgical specialists in a variety of disciplines, represents the latest expansion of Princeton Health locations that provide care and support to individuals with cancer. Additional locations providing oncology care include the Matthews Cancer Care Suite at PMC and the Breast Health Center in East Windsor. These three locations are all part of Penn Medicine Princeton Cancer Center.
“We are bringing together cancer experts who are not only highly specialized and educated in their fields but who are dedicated to helping patients understand their diagnosis, their options, and what will give them the best chance to beat their cancer,” said David B. Sokol, MD, Medical Director of Outpatient Infusion. “Locating these professionals within the same suite supports a highly integrated approach that better serves patients and their families.”
Comprehensive cancer care available through Princeton Health includes state-of-the-art imaging and pathology services, radiation, infusion, surgical care, physical therapy, nutrition support, and palliative care.
“We are deeply committed to providing outstanding care and peace of mind to our patients and their loved ones,” said James Demetriades, Princeton Health CEO. “As we work to expand the depth and breadth of cancer services that are available locally, we also continue to provide seamless access to world-class cancer treatment at Penn Medicine in Philadelphia when that level of care is needed.”
This includes access to advanced treatments such as proton therapy, immunotherapy, and clinical trials through Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center, a world leader in research and patient care.
The new suite in the Medical Arts Pavilion expands access to specialized care for various cancers, including lung, colorectal, prostate, ovarian, endometrial/uterine, cervical, vulvar and vaginal. For women with gynecologic cancers, the care available at Princeton Health provides greater opportunities for early detection and treatment while utilizing approaches that help to preserve fertility, a crucial concern for women who wish to have children.
A cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming and affect many different aspects of a patient's life. Recognizing this, the suite provides patients with support from a number of professionals, including oncology nurse navigators, financial navigators, and oncology nutritionists.
