Cancer Center of Boston Company Profile

09:33 EDT 21st September 2018 | BioPortfolio

The Cancer Center of Boston was established in September 1986 by Jacob J. Lokich, MD and Murray M. Bern, MD, formerly the chiefs of medical oncology and hematology, respectively, at the New England Deaconess Hospital. Their collaboration was based on the desire to develop a network of community based, freestanding facilities to diagnose and treat cancer and hematologic diseases with state-of-the-art therapies and access to clinical trials.Over the ensuing decade, the Boston facility has been expanded to include facilities or programs in Arlington (1987), Plymouth (1991) and Framingham (1994).In 2005, The Cancer Center relocated the Boston office to Chestnut Hill. Community based referrals are complemented by referrals from families and patients representing approximately 50% of all new patients.We see patients from regional, national and international locales, in part because of special areas of expertise such as infusion chemotherapy and participation on national and international clinical trial panels.
