New cancer center comes to North Bergen

By ,

The John Theurer Cancer Center, based out of Hackensack University Medical Center, announced Wednesday the opening of a new 9,600-square-foot outpatient facility at the North Bergen-based Palisades Medical Center.

The center, which will offer disease-specific cancer specialists, access to top diagnostic and treatment technologies and the chance to enroll in more than 200 clinical trials, represents a growing relationship between JTCC and the Palisades Medical Center, according the Robert C. Garrett, CEO and president of Hackensack University Health Network.

“The opening of this incredible facility illustrates our commitment to cultivating a great partnership with Palisades Medical Center and to providing patients across northern New Jersey with top-notch medical care,” he said in a prepared statement.

Andrew L. Pecora, vice president of cancer services and chief innovations officer of JTCC, said that the new facility at the Palisades Medical Center will provide specialized services for a community in great need of them.

 “An estimated 4,000 cancer patients per year in the Hudson County/Palisades area are in need of cancer treatment," he said in a statement. "John Theurer Cancer Center brings specialized, value-based cancer care to the backyards of patients who previously may have only seen a general oncologist for complicated tumor types or who may not have sought appropriate care at all.”
