Receiving care in a soothing environment can help reduce anxiety and promote healing.

To provide patients with a peaceful landscape, most of the site has been left wooded. Oversize windows throughout the center fill the space with daylight and offer views of nature. The color palette emphasizes calming, natural hues, and care has been taken to maintain quiet. Patients also have the ability to control the temperature in the area where they receive chemotherapy.
Privacy is a top priority — patients in gowns are not visible to other patients or visitors. In addition, medical equipment and devices are concealed from view to help minimize stress. These measures were adopted based on the suggestions of patients, their family members, and our clinical staff.

Cancer prevention and early detection are top priorities at Memorial Sloan Kettering. We offer breast cancer screening services including digital mammography, ultrasound, and MRI, as well as skin cancer screening exams.
Getting a precise diagnosis is the critical first step toward getting the right cancer treatment. At Basking Ridge we use the most-sophisticated imaging technologies — including ultrasound, MRI, CT, PET scans, and PET/CT — to determine the diagnosis and stage of your cancer. We also perform stereotactic, ultrasound-guided, and MRI-guided biopsies.
Our pathologists subspecialize in specific types of cancer and are experts in identifying important characteristics of tumors that can indicate which treatments will be most effective. In many cases we use advanced tests that also consider the genetic traits of the tumor. This information enables us to provide personalized treatment.

We use intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) to target the tumor while sparing the surrounding healthy tissue. On-board imaging (OBI) is used immediately before and during each treatment to ensure that the radiation is delivered precisely.
Skin Cancer Treatment
At Basking Ridge, we offer state-of-the-art dermatologic care, focusing on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of skin cancers, including melanoma. Using Mohs micrographic surgery, our experienced team removes cancers from the skin while preserving surrounding tissue and minimizing scarring. We also use photodynamic and laser therapies. If you are at high risk for skin cancer, we use whole-body photography, dermoscopy, confocal microscopy, and computerized digital imaging systems to monitor for new cancers.
