Chemotherapy and Infusion Therapies
New York Methodist Hospital's Institute for Cancer Care offers a full range of advanced treatments for cancer and each treatment plan is based on the unique needs and choices of the patient. Frequently a main component of cancer treatment, chemotherapy is the use of drugs given by mouth or injection to destroy cells that pose a danger to the body. Chemotherapy can also be useful in treating blood and immune system disorders.
At New York Methodist Hospital, chemotherapy treatment is generally administered on an outpatient basis. When a patient needs to receive chemotherapy as an inpatient at New York Methodist, he or she stays on the dedicated oncology unit.
All chemotherapy is given under the supervision of a physician specializing in medical oncology with carefully developed protocols for pharmacy and drug administration. New York Methodist frequently participates in clinical trials for new treatments, giving patients access to the latest information in chemotherapy research.
