At MSK Bergen, residents of Bergen, Essex, Passaic, and Hudson counties in New Jersey, and those living in the lower New York counties of Orange and Rockland, have easier access to the following MSK services:

- radiation treatment
- mammography, ultrasound, MRI, CT, and PET imaging
- clinical trials
- a cancer-specific retail pharmacy

At Memorial Sloan Kettering, doctors, nurses, and other specialists work together on treatment teams for each patient. This means that your care team is highly experienced in caring for people with the type of cancer you have. In addition to your medical care, your team will also develop a plan to care for your total well-being, including support for your family and loved ones.
For most cancers, your treatment will be led by one or more primary doctors. These could include a medical oncologist, a surgical oncologist or a radiation oncologist. Each of these doctors brings a defined set of expertise and techniques for treating cancer.
Many of MSK Bergen’s 200 clinical staff members are from the surrounding area, adding an even greater sense of community.
