Queens Cancer Center is committed to providing high-quality care to all patients, including immigrants and other medically underserved people with cancer.
In 2005, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Queens Cancer Center established the Queens Cancer Center Primary Care Survivors Clinic, which provides follow-up care to cancer survivors who do not have a primary care physician. Each year, this clinic accommodates more than 1,000 patient visits.
Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s Immigrant Health and Cancer Disparities Service and Survivorship Initiative are working with Queens Cancer Center to assess the clinic’s ability to help cancer survivors manage a variety of medical conditions. This evaluation will help guide the development and delivery of healthcare for survivors, and could offer a model of care for other city public hospital systems.
