Increasing Access Close to Home
Through our transformative investment, we will expand our footprint and provide comprehensive cancer care to more patients and families, close to home.
We understand the importance of receiving care that is close to home and loved ones. That is why we keep care local while providing patients with access to our world-class network of physicians, clinical trials and ancillary and support services.
This work to conquer cancer is possible because of our team of exceptional leaders, physicians, researchers, caregivers and staff.
- We are proud to be home to world-class experts in their fields – from academic leaders to beloved community providers – who bring decades of experience and expertise to bear for our patients and communities.
- Our team-based approach means that we’re able to provide coordinated care to patients at every step of their journey.
- Importantly, our team is united in a shared vision of what the future of cancer looks like – from prevention to treatment to survivorship. Together, we know we can make this vision a reality.
We are making transformative investments in world-class facilities that ensure patients and families have access to care when, where and how they need it.
The Jack and Sheryl Morris Cancer Center
The Jack and Sheryl Morris Cancer Center will be New Jersey’s first freestanding cancer hospital when completed in early 2025. It will house inpatient, outpatient and support services, as well as state-of-the-art laboratories where research faculty can provide hands-on educational opportunities for students and physician-scientists can translate scientific findings directly to patients. The center is named in recognition of the philanthropic leadership of Jack Morris, who has been a longtime supporter and pillar in New Brunswick development, and his wife, Sheryl.
The Cancer Center at Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center
The Cancer Center at Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center will be a regional destination for cancer care, building on the medical center’s long-standing legacy of clinical expertise and compassionate, patient-centered diagnosis and treatment.
The Vogel Medical Campus at Tinton Falls
The Vogel Medical Campus at Tinton Falls will revitalize Fort Monmouth, transforming the historical site into an outpatient center that offers comprehensive cancer services, same-day surgery, on-site specialty services and advanced diagnostic imaging.
Advancing Groundbreaking Research and Clinical Trials
Together, we bring the latest advancements and clinical trials from Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey into every RWJBarnabas Health facility, giving researchers access to a large, diverse patient population and patients access to potentially life-changing treatments they can’t get anywhere else.
At Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and RWJBarnabas Health, we’re changing lives through cutting-edge cancer research across five comprehensive research programs:
- Cancer Metabolism and Growth
- Genomic Instability and Cancer Genetics
- Cancer Pharmacology
- Clinical Investigations and Precisions Therapeutics
- Cancer Prevention and Control
As the state’s only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, we are part of an elite group of institutions characterized by the highest level of scientific excellence in cancer research, the ability to translate discoveries into treatments, a responsibility to educate the public and healthcare professionals and provide outreach to underserved populations. Alongside our NCI Cancer Center Consortium partner, Princeton University, we also advance important cancer research and discoveries, with a focus on cancer metabolism, genomics and metastasis.
Through expanded clinical research programs and collaborations, including at the Duncan and Nancy MacMillan Cancer Immunology and Metabolism Center of Excellence at Rutgers Cancer Institute and the Ludwig Princeton Branch of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research at Princeton University, we will continue to enhance and promote the translation of groundbreaking discoveries from the laboratory to the bedside and back, resulting in new treatment options like precision medicine, immunotherapy, complex surgical procedures and sophisticated radiation therapy techniques.
To us, our patients are more than their diagnosis. They’re people with unique experiences, histories and needs that extend beyond cancer treatment, remission and recovery.
It’s our team-based approach that elevates the patient experience and sets the standard for what care, service and compassion should be, and it’s our coordinated teams of providers and caregivers who make this experience possible for our patients.
We know that our world-class care requires world-class access, which is why we strive to create a seamless continuum of care, supporting our patients through their entire journey – from screening to diagnosis to survivorship.
