As part of the massive BuildingHOPE project, Jersey Shore University Medical Center will open a new Cancer Care Center at its Neptune campus in 2018. The new Cancer Care Center at Jersey Shore will build upon well established and trusted oncology services already offered through Meridian Cancer Care.
Jersey Shore’s multi-disciplinary team of specialists provides timely diagnoses, treatment and support in a full range of disease areas, including breast, gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, pancreatic, neuro-oncology, melanoma, thoracic and gynecologic oncology.
As part of BuildingHOPE, the 58,000 square-foot cancer care facility will offer a range of comprehensive treatment options including surgical specialties, medical oncology, and the most advanced radiation therapy and minimally invasive interventional therapies.
Nurse navigators will guide patients through every step and provide an extra layer of support and coordination. Patients and families will have access to Meridian Cancer Care’s clinical expertise in an environment designed to provide the best health care experience.
