North Shore-LIJ Cancer Institute is a highly advanced network of expert resources. Together, we collaborate to discover the best solutions for treating cancer – and to formulate the best care plan for you. Through our multidisciplinary approach, we’ll ensure you’re surrounded by a specialized care team who will guide you through every need of your treatment journey. Our goals include caring for your emotional and psychological needs, as well as your physical ones, throughout your treatment.

Every day, North Shore-LIJ Cancer Institute is working to research newer, better and more effective ways to fight cancer. We are one of the busiest cancer centers in the metropolitan region for many very good reasons:

Elite physicians and researchers

Many of our clinicians have trained and practiced at some of the top hospitals and cancer programs in the region – and they choose to make North Shore-LIJ their home.

A continuum of award-winning care

As a cancer program within one of the largest health systems in the country, our network of connected emergency rooms, full service hospitals, and specialists of every kind are fully prepared to confront any event, cancer-related or otherwise, during your care.

Multidisciplinary teams

Each of our 12 disease oriented Cancer Centers represents a multidisciplinary team involved with research, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, support and post-treatment care.

Clinical trials and research

In collaboration with the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, our patients have the opportunity to participate in studies initiated by our clinicians as well as clinical trials from both the National Cancer Institute supported cooperative groups and the pharmaceutical industry. We proudly have been a National Cancer Institute-designated Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP) for over 29 years and have enrolled more than 8,000 participants in clinical trials.

Strength in numbers

We diagnose and/or treat over 16,000 cancer patients each year, making us one of the largest cancer programs in the NY metropolitan area. This means that we have experience treating a relatively large number of patients with some of the most complex and rarest forms of cancer. 

The latest and greatest

To ensure our patients receive the very best care, North Shore-LIJ has invested in state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment technology, such as low-dose CT scanners, 3D mammography, da Vinci® robotic surgery system and Novalis® ExacTrac™ stereotactic radiosurgery system. We also have access to the latest drugs.

Truly personalized care

We know our patients by name. No one is a number. We treat you like family. That’s one reason people who can choose treatment anywhere in the world keep choosing us. Your individualized treatment plan takes into consideration much more than just your diagnosis – it includes family history, lifestyle, general health, and much more. We make sure that each and every patient receives the unrelenting compassion and personalized care they deserve. 

Specialized facilities

As part of North Shore-LIJ Health System, our Institute has unique access to many state-of-the-art and specialized facilities. The Center for Advanced Medicine conveniently combines diagnostic imaging, urology and medical oncology services under one roof. Located at both LIJ Medical Center and North Shore University Hospital, our Katz Women’s Hospitals provide superior care for the special needs of women. Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York is one of the largest children’s hospitals in the NY metropolitan area. A large number of fully integrated outpatient imaging centers and laboratory centers are also part of our network.
