Winning the war against cancer represents another important challenge for the Department of Medicine. Its Division of Oncology and Hematology, under the direction of Dr. Sandeep Malik, is achieving a high survival rate for cancer patients. Radiation Oncology services are also provided using advanced techniques, including a linear accelerator and other state-of-the-art equipment. An outpatient Oncology Center and Center for Colorectal and Gastrointestinal Health are providing specialized diagnostic treatment and support services. In addition, a 10,000 square foot Cancer Center will soon be completed. It will provide a wide range of highly specialized diagnostic and treatment services at the outpatient level with state-of-the-art technology.
