“The Brooklyn Cancer Center will bring the highest level of radiation therapy and advanced treatment options to the Brooklyn community,” said Jeff Vacirca, MD, CEO of NYCBS.

Radiation Oncology services will be staffed by dedicated and compassionate radiation oncologists, who will partner with medical oncologists and their care teams to develop the appropriate treatment plan for each patient.
