Cancer Care


We know how to treat cancer.
RWJ Hamilton's oncology program integrates a medical practice with leading oncology specialists from the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, outpatient treatment and support services.

As an affiliate of the Rutgers Cancer Institute, the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in New Jersey, we provide access to research and new scientific advances for the treatment of all types of malignancies and blood disorders. 

The oncology program is accredited by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer and the breast program is also accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers.

We also know how to treat people.

At Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey Hamilton, we treat each patient as a unique person — tailoring treatment, education and support to individual needs. Our cancer care team works tirelessly to ensure you enjoy the best possible quality of life during and after treatment. A dedicated oncology social worker supports the psychosocial needs of patients and provides financial counseling. Nurse navigators provide added support and education from diagnosis through treatment and survivorship.

Built beyond the walls of the hospital.
The outpatient cancer center provides added convenience and comfort for its patients, including convenient parking and an infusion center that overlooks healing gardens designed by the renowned Grounds For Sculpture. A planned expansion of the center will occur in 2017, which will provide patients with a new radiation oncology suite outfitted with state-of-the-art technology.
