St. Joseph’s Health Launches Cancer Care Service Line in Partnership with Roswell Park
St. Joseph’s Health is proud to announce the launch of a groundbreaking Cancer Care service line, bringing exceptional oncology services to Central New York. With medical oncology provided in collaboration with Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo, NY, this initiative reinforces the Hospital’s commitment to providing personalized, patient-centric cancer care close to home.
The newly established Cancer Care service line at St. Joseph’s Health aims to redefine the landscape of cancer treatment, offering a holistic approach to care that integrates advanced therapies, personalized treatment plans, and a collaborative team of experts. This program ensures patients receive the highest quality care while navigating their cancer journey.
“St. Joseph’s Health is dedicated to delivering innovative and compassionate cancer care tailored to each patient’s unique needs. Our Comprehensive Cancer Care Service Line, with medical oncology provided in collaboration with Roswell Park, brings nationally recognized expertise right here to Syracuse,” said Dr. Steven Hanks, President and CEO of St. Joseph’s Health and St. Peter’s Health Partners.
The cornerstone of this initiative is the partnership with Roswell Park, a nationally recognized leader in cancer care. Established in 2019, the Roswell Park Care Network is a dynamic alliance of medical providers committed to delivering exceptional, guideline-driven care to patients across New York State and beyond. This collaboration allows St. Joseph’s Health to offer the latest treatment options, integrated care plans, access to clinical trials, and advanced telemedicine via Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, the only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated comprehensive cancer center in upstate New York.
“We are thrilled to work collaboratively with St. Joseph’s Health to expand access to the most innovative cancer treatment options in Syracuse and Central New York,” says Candace S. Johnson, PhD, President, CEO and M&T Bank Presidential Chair in Leadership at Roswell Park. “We remain steadfast in our dedication to bring the expertise of our nationally designated cancer center to more patients, no matter where they live. Patients of this affiliation will not only benefit from the care of an excellent oncologist in Dr. Khadim, but also the consult of a whole team of multidisciplinary cancer experts back in Buffalo to help ensure all options are considered and the most appropriate treatment plan for each individual.”
“At St. Joseph’s Health, we recognize the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to cancer care. Our collaborative team, including cancer specialists, surgeons, pathologists, and radiologists, works seamlessly to optimize treatment plans and provide the best possible outcomes for our patients,” added Meredith Price, President of St. Joseph’s Health Hospital.
As part of this transformative venture, St. Joseph’s Health and Roswell Park welcome Dr. Haider Ali Khadim, an experienced oncologist, as the newest addition to the Cancer Care Service Line. Dr. Khadim brings expertise and a commitment to delivering high-quality, individualized cancer care to the region. Dr. Khadim holds his MBBS from King Edward Medical University in Pakistan and completed his residency and fellowship at SUNY Upstate Medical University.
St. Joseph’s Health Cancer Care offers a wide range of treatments and services, including accurate and timely diagnosis through the latest imaging procedures, comprehensive lab services, genetic testing, and advanced endoscopic procedures. The program covers various cancer types, such as breast, colorectal, lung, and gastrointestinal cancers, as well as blood cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma.
