About Us

The Derald H. Ruttenberg Treatment Center, part of The Tisch Cancer Institute at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, provides comprehensive outpatient care for patients with all types of cancers and benign hematologic conditions with the exception of breast cancer, which is treated at Mount Sinai’s Dubin Breast Center. Occupying two full floors in Mount Sinai’s state-of-the-art Leon and Norma Hess Center for Science and Medicine, the Ruttenberg Treatment Center has a long history of excellence in the treatment of cancer, especially hematologic cancers, including leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and myeloproliferative disorders. Our bone marrow transplant program is one of the largest in the New York City area.

At the Ruttenberg Treatment Center (RTC), you will be cared for by a team of health professionals. Currently, the center has the following specialists on site:

  • Medical Oncologists who specialize in solid tumors and hematological malignancies
  • Hematologists specializing in benign blood disorders
  • Otolaryngologists with expertise in head and neck diseases
  • Gynecologic Oncologists focused on gynecological cancers
  • Surgical Oncologists
  • Thoracic Surgeons
  • Endocrine Neoplasia experts
  • Supportive Oncology
  • Onco-Cardiologists
  • Radiation Oncologists

Nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, and an on-site pharmacist, all with specialized training in oncology/hematology, will work with you on a day-to-day basis to carry out the plan of care that you and your physician have agreed upon. Social workers and nutritionists, all of whom are specially trained in caring for cancer patients, will round out your clinical team. You will also have access to a wide range of support services (all free-of-charge), including individual and group counseling and nutrition education.

As part of The Mount Sinai Hospital, our physicians can draw on the expertise of subspecialists across all departments of the Medical Center. By quickly arranging referrals to on-campus physicians in areas including cardiology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, organ transplant, and palliative care, we save our patients critical time and the need to coordinate care at multiple institutions.

Radiation Oncology is located in the Hess Building on the SC level as well as at 1184 5th Avenue.
