The Blavatnik Family – Chelsea Medical Center
The quiet block of West 15th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues in Manhattan houses some of the finest women’s cancer care doctors, outpatient surgeons, and infusion therapists in New York City. Now you can receive state-of-the-art cancer diagnosis and treatment in a welcoming environment right near Chelsea Market, the High Line, and art galleries. From consultation to diagnosis and treatment, we offer world-class medical care that’s only minutes away.
At the Blavatnik Center, we specialize in diagnosing and treating women who have breast or gynecological cancer; our expert staff of specialists will design a personalized treatment plan that works for you. We also treat men who need minor outpatient surgery or infusion therapy.
Women’s Cancer Program
The Blavatnik Center was specifically designed with one goal in mind: creating a space for women that’s welcoming, comfortable, and unique. In our Women’s Cancer Program, the specialized setting, advanced services, and soothing environment are unparalleled in women’s cancer care. And all of our services are conveniently located on one floor that you can easily navigate without ever climbing stairs or taking an elevator, making it easy to find a consultation room or comfortable examination and diagnostic rooms. You can receive chemotherapy in our infusion suite, and the radiation treatment area is not far away.
While we specialize in women’s cancer, it is not all we do. In our surgical suite, surgeons perform simple outpatient procedures, such as:
- MOHS (a minor surgical procedure to remove a basal cell carcinoma from the skin)
- Hernia operations
- Uncomplicated lumpectomies
Regular infusions for chronic conditions can be time-consuming, even grueling in some instances. At the Blavatnik Center, our infusion suite provides infusion therapy for both men and women who have benign conditions and need intravenous medication on a regular basis.
During your infusion, you may be tense or feel stressed; we’ll provide a complimentary massage therapist to help you relax. We also have a nutritionist on staff who will discuss how healthy eating can support your recovery. And if your infusion takes longer than a few hours, you’ll be provided a private room, where you’ll be able to recline until your therapy is completed.
Providing the very best-in-class services is what sets us apart. During your cancer treatments you can choose from a full menu of free support services that provide you with physical, social, and emotional support. These services include:
- Nutritional counseling
- Social work/social services
- Psychiatric services
There is a calendar full of group activities to further enrich your recovery.
At the Blavatnik Center, we bring you the most innovative medicine and advanced health care through our pioneering research and by pushing the limits of discovery in clinical trials—providing you with the very latest diagnostic and treatment available.
The Blavatnik Center is an integral part of the Mount Sinai Health System, whose flagship hospital, The Mount Sinai Hospital, is recognized by U.S. News & World Report as being one of the nation’s finest hospitals.
