Cancer Care Center

A Team Approach That Places Patients First

Welcome to the Cancer Center at Boston Medical Center.

At Boston Medical Center, our experienced cancer specialists combine their extensive knowledge and expert skills to focus on each patient’s needs. This comprehensive, multi-specialty team approach to diagnosis, treatment and follow-up ensures that the most up-to-date options and recommendations are offered to patients in a timely and coordinated way.

BMC has been named by U.S. News & World Report as among the best hospitals in the region and a high performing provider – in the top 25 percent of hospitals across the country – in the areas of cancer care; diabetes & endocrinology; geriatrics nephrology; neurology and neurosurgery; pulmonary and rheumatology in Best Hospitals 2013. In addition, BMC was ranked 10th in regional rankings covering all of New England and 8th in the Boston metropolitan area, which covers a wide geographic area south and north of the city. Only 15 percent of all hospitals nationwide are recognized for their high performance as among their region’s best and only 3 percent of all hospitals nationwide earn a national ranking in any specialty.
