    The Brooklyn Cancer Center Open in Downtown Brooklyn

    August 25, 2022

    The Brooklyn Cancer Center (TBCC), a partnership between New York Cancer & Blood Specialists (NYCBS), one of the leading oncology practices in the nation, and The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC), an independent community hospital in Fort Greene/Downtown Brooklyn, marked a major milestone today by announcing the opening of its newly created center located at 86 Fleet Place in Downtown Brooklyn, providing a new home for the region’s top cancer care.

    “NYCBS has bridged the gap for patients to receive high-quality cancer treatment close to home,” says Jeff Vacirca, MD, CEO of NYCBS. “The Brooklyn Cancer Center will bring state-of-the-art facilities, increased capacity, and the architectural atmosphere aligns with our world-class care.”

    TBCC is staffed by top-ranked physicians, including Chief of Hematology/Oncology Maxim Shulimovich, MD, Asmat Ullah, MD, Shahzaib Nabi, MD, Minh-Phuong Huynh-Le, MD, and Kalimullah Quadri, MD, providing expert care and culturally sensitive services for patients with all types of cancer and blood disorders. Right in Downtown Brooklyn, patients can find a unique path to treatment with comprehensive support.

    “This partnership means the very best comprehensive care for cancer patients is available right here in Brooklyn. We say this a lot — you don’t have to go across the bridge for excellent care — but that statement has never been more true when it comes to the complete range of services The Brooklyn Cancer Center offers, now in a spectacular setting, just a few blocks from the hospital,” says Gary G. Terrinoni, President and CEO of TBHC.
