“Advancing cancer care requires teams of clinicians and researchers, as well as the participation of patients, to reach this common goal. Our view is that combining the strengths of both of these institutions significantly magnifies the progress that can be made,” said Louis M. Weiner, MD, director of Georgetown Lombardi.
“Hackensack University Medical Center has always focused on excellence in patient care and investing in research and technology for the future,” said Robert C. Garrett, president and chief executive officer of Hackensack University Health Network. “For this partnership, we are combining our strength in clinical care with Georgetown Lombardi’s strong research base that significantly contributes to its clinical excellence. By working together, we will elevate our cancer research to offer more treatment options for tomorrow’s patients.”
