Hematology-Oncology Associates of CNY, a national leader in cancer care, will celebrate its 30th anniversary this July. Cancer care has come a long way in 30 years but what has not changed is the practice’s dedication and commitment to their patients, employees and our community.
In 2003, the practice built its first comprehensive cancer center in East Syracuse and developed the first Integrative/Complementary Therapy program in Central New York. This 65,000 square foot cancer center remains home to the best and brightest physicians and staff, leading edge drug therapies and technologies, state of the art equipment, an Integrative/Wellness program and holistic services and programs to meet the nutritional and emotional needs of patients, their caregivers and families. The cancer center also has a lovely boutique, comprehensive imaging center and donates space that is home to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer foundation. The practice also operates a comprehensive cancer facility on Onondaga Hill in Syracuse and has satellite offices in Rome and at North Medical Center in Liverpool. A new satellite office, complete with infusion and supportive services will open in Auburn in April of 2012. Located in Camillus, HOA also provides the only physician sponsored Healing & Wellness Center in New York State.
Winner of the national 2009 HOPE Award for Clinical Best Practice and Outstanding Leadership, the skill and spirit of the people is what separates HOA from any other cancer center. This is supported by a 99 percent patient satisfaction rate. One of the best kept secrets of HOA is its Clinical Cancer Research division. HOA will also celebrate its 25th year of participation with the National Cancer Institute as Central New York’s only Community Clinical Oncology Program. This prestigious affiliation allows cancer patients in our community to access clinical research trials and collaborate with major cancer centers across the nation. In 2008, HOA was nationally recognized by the American Society of Clinical Oncology by receiving its annual, prestigious, “Clinical Trials Award.” The practice’s accruals to clinical cancer trials and research are the highest in Central New York. Hematology-Oncology Associates of CNY has been recognized by the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) Certification Program, an affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. The QOPI Certification Program provides a three-year certification for outpatient hematology-oncology practices that meet the highest standards for quality cancer care. HOA is the only cancer practice in CNY to achieve this status.
