JSUMC now has an extensive Cancer Care Center for Shore residents
The successful John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center will now expand its care and services to Jersey Shore University Medical Center’s HOPE Tower, providing closer access and top-notch care for anyone battling against cancer in Ocean and Monmouth counties and beyond.
The Hackensack Meridian John Theurer Cancer Center is also part of the NCI-designated Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.
This will be a game changer in cancer care in Jersey Shore with Hackensack Meridian Health adding a new chapter of JTCC to JSUMC where doctors, surgeons and all medical personnel involved can help with all kinds of cancers including cancers of the blood such as multiple myeloma, lymphoma and leukemia.
HMH said they also have one of the nation’s largest bone marrow transplant programs and that John Theurer Cancer Center now in HOPE Tower will help provide services for leukemia and blood stem cell transplant and adult marrow, among other services.
JSUMC’s JTCC will also offer CAR-T cell therapy in lymphoma, leukemia and myeloma, comprehensive oncology/hematology medical and surgical advisory services by national experts for all types and stages of cancer and serious blood disorders , comprehensive infusion services, genomic analysis, and access to cutting-edge clinical trials, according to HMH.
“The HOPE Tower went live in 2017 and the goal was to provide services focused on the patient and family experience,” said Dr. Ken Sable, regional president of the Southern New Jersey market of Hackensack Meridian Health, at Townsquare Media News. “We have leading experts in more than 20 adult and pediatric specialties – pioneering, lifesaving medical breakthroughs using state-of-the-art technology – all with offices in the HOPE Tower.”
Now, HOPE Tower will become even larger and more resourceful by adding the JTCC to the care offered here.
“We already have a comprehensive cancer center in the HOPE tower on our first and second floors which includes radiation therapy and infusion therapy, a cardio-oncology program, advanced testing, counseling and supportive care,” said said Dr. Sable. “Most recently, we partnered with Hackensack University Medical Center’s Organ Transplant Division to create a destination program at Jersey Shore (University Medical Center) in HOPE Tower, where patients can have all of their pre-op work done and all of their post-op transplant work done locally close to home, but they get the actual transplant procedure done at Hackensack in a fully coordinated model.”
You’ll be able to get more care, more treatment, and recovery closer to home so you don’t have to travel as far for what you need during a battle with cancer and feel confident knowing that’s the best care there is.
“The John Theurer Cancer Center is ranked as the best cancer center in New Jersey by US News and World Report and JTCC is best known for its award-winning blood cancer programs, including multiple myeloma, lymphoma and leukemia, as well as one of the largest bone marrow transplant programs in the country,” said the Dr Sand. “The new HOPE Tower location will give patients in southern and central New Jersey and even surrounding states (Pennsylvania and Delaware) access to expert clinical trials and research close to home. .
You may have easier and closer access to cancer care, treatment, testing and research.
“We already provide kind of a full range of cancer services for general cancer care and specialty areas, but we’re partnering with the top-ranked cancer center in New Jersey to bring new programs, specifically and specifically , phase 1 clinical research, the leukemia program which is a blood cancer program as well as bone marrow transplants which to date have not been offered at the university medical center of Jersey Shore,” said Dr Sable. “I think one of the most exciting things is that we will be one of the few venues to offer CAR T-Cell Therapy for patients with lymphoma, leukemia and myeloma. »
One of the other hopes of adding this new JTCC Cancer Care Center to JSUMC is that more people living and working in Ocean County and Monmouth County and even in the area, will feel more at home. comfortable seeking cancer treatment and care close to home and feel better about not having to travel so far to get the best possible cancer care.
“I think one of the things people are looking for, especially when they’re diagnosed with cancer or, frankly, any diagnosis, is trust and comfort in your care delivery team,” said Dr Sand. “You want to know that when you go to your doctor or the hospital where you are going to be treated, that they are up to date with the latest standards, cutting-edge technology to treat you and that this will give you the best possible chance. survival and partnership within our own network – such an amazing cancer center and all the wonderful programs that have been built over 20+ years at Hackensack University Medical Center and John Theurer Cancer Center – to be able to to bring this to our patients – I think it will give them tremendous comfort and confidence that they can get and receive the best care, cutting edge technology right here in their backyard.”
