Our clinical team includes board-certified and fellowship-trained medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, and surgeons, as well as oncology-certified nurses. The unique collaboration among the three organizations—comprised of Brigham and Women’s surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and South Shore Hospital’s radiologists and pathologists—helps to establish a coordinated, comprehensive approach to care.
Our cancer care also features a specialized, 30-bed inpatient oncology unit—offering spacious private rooms—located at South Shore Hospital. The nursing team on the unit has expertise in the care of oncology patients with active cancer-related issues, such as pain, symptom management and chemotherapy administration.
Our board-certified physicians of Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center in clinical affiliation with South Shore Hospital, provide outpatient chemotherapy to patients at the Center. The expertise of these oncologists ensures that our patients receive unparalleled care. The Cancer Center also offers a number of clinical trials and new protocols to provide the widest possible range of treatment options. Learn More.

Clinical trials are research studies that test new treatments to see how well they work. These trials help scientists answer questions about new cancer therapies, including: what diseases should they be used for? What doses of new drugs are most effective? And which patients can benefit the most from them? Learn More.
