Medical Oncology and Hematology at UM St. Joseph Medical Center provides a seamless continuum of patient-centered medical care. Our medical oncologists work closely with surgeons, radiation oncologists and specialized cancer nurses to provide care that is effective, individualized and supports your well-being.

Our medical oncologists provide treatment for patients in the hospital and on an outpatient basis, and remain available throughout the cancer journey. They:
