Overview

Caring for Patients & Families Living with Cancer

At the Cancer Center at Tufts Medical Center, we offer some of the most advanced cancer treatments in New England. But that's not all that makes us special. We also understand that cancer can affect every aspect of your life — and the lives of your loved ones. That's why we put your needs at the center of everything we do.

Cancer Treatment That's Second to None

By taking a collaborative approach to your care, we can provide cancer treatments that are truly individualized. As a patient here, your team will include a carefully selected group of specialists from across Tufts MC. Each has expertise in a different aspect of your care, from personalizing your cancer-fighting drugs to helping you manage pain.

We treat all forms of cancer in adults and children, including rare and complex brain, blood and breast tumors. Here, you'll find:

All the Support You'll Need

Our support services are as central to our mission as our world-class cancer therapies.

Through our partnership with the Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care, we allow patients and families to stay together during treatment. Located within the walls of Tufts MC, the Neely House provides a comforting home-away-from-home with apartment-style suites that include full kitchens and welcoming living spaces.

Many patients are paired with a nurse navigator to answer questions and coordinate care during cancer treatments. In addition, a Cancer Center social worker can help you and your family with financial/insurance questions and connect you with support services at Tufts MC and in your community.

A History of Innovation & Excellence

Our program has been delivering innovative cancer treatments since the 1940s. We performed the first bone marrow transplant in Boston and pioneered the use of transplant technology to treat blood-borne cancers. In the 1970s, we became one of the first medical centers to take a team approach to cancer treatment — a multidisciplinary approach that cancer centers nationwide have since adopted.

Today, UHC — a quality improvement alliance representing the country's leading medical centers — ranks Tufts among the top U.S. cancer centers. We're the only center in Boston to receive this designation.
