Mount Sinai, Valley Health System partner on cancer care

New York City-based Mount Sinai Health System is partnering with Ridgewood, N.J.-based Valley Health System to expand improved cancer care services in Northern New Jersey, according to NJ Biz.

The partnership will expand patients' access to clinical trials in New Jersey and reduce the need to travel to New York City for cancer care.

According to Robert Korst, MD, director of Valley Health System's Blumenthal Cancer Center, introducing Mount Sinai's renowned cancer care brand could attract many more patients to Valley Health System facilities.

The focus of the partnership is the opening of a new clinical genomic unit at Valley Health System, as well as the collaboration for a clinically integrated trial system, according to the report.

"This relationship with Mount Sinai will benefit our community by offering access to an expanded roster of clinical trials, programs and services for patients diagnosed with cancer," Valley Health CEO Audrey Meyers said in a statement. "We look forward to working with Mount Sinai to bring world-class cancer care to the residents of northern New Jersey."
