RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- For those seeking cancer care in northern New Jersey, the future just got brighter. Valley Health System has recently partnered with the Mount Sinai Health System to offer a new, state-of- the-art, comprehensive cancer care system in the comfort of the suburbs.
The partnership will enable Valley to provide enhanced inpatient and outpatient cancer services by offering an expanded roster of clinical trials and convenient access to Mount Sinai’s nationally renowned experts in the field of cancer care.
“We are proud to partner with Valley Health System to offer cancer care services,” said Dr. Steven Burakoff, The Lillian and Henry Stratton Professor of Medicine, Professor of Oncological Sciences, and Director of The Tisch Cancer Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, a National Cancer Institute designated cancer center. “We recognize the high quality of cancer care that Valley Health System has traditionally provided, and see many opportunities to offer patients in northern New Jersey the foremost in cancer care through this partnership.”
Last year, Valley and Mount Sinai announced plans to join forces on clinical programs, research and educational offerings. This oncology alliance is one of the first such collaborations between the two organizations which will work together to enhance patient care both at Valley’s Blumenthal Cancer Center in Paramus and the main campus in Ridgewood.
New York City-based Mount Sinai comprises seven hospitals and the Icahn School of Medicine. Valley Health System, headquartered in Ridgewood, New Jersey, includes The Valley Hospital, Valley Home Care and Valley Medical Group.
