New York Cancer & Blood Specialists opened a cancer care center in Riverhead on January 20. The building at 750 Old Country Road features, according to a press release, the most advanced cancer treatment on Long Island.
The new center boasts cutting-edge medical technology and equipment and provides a comfortable and attentive environment that is conducive for healing. The center has advanced PET/CT scans and state-of-the-art radiation therapy, will offer clinical trials, and be able to process laboratory tests and deliver faster results to patients. There is also an on-site pharmacy where patients can pick up their medication after visiting their doctor.
“Through 40 years of treating and actually listening to our patients, we understand their needs and what they want — top-quality treatment and compassionate services 24 hours a day,” said New York Cancer & Blood Specialists CEO Dr. Jeffrey Vacirca. “We want our patients to have what they need when they need it, and closer to home. Now we can do it all under one roof in Riverhead.”
The center also offers a wellness program staffed by experts to provide nutritional, emotional, financial, and psychological guidance for its patients. For more information, call 631-751-3000 or visit www.nycancer.com.
Also, Beyond Boundaries autism specialists and therapeutic services, a Long Island organization which treats individuals affected by autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities, marked the grand opening of its location in Riverhead in January.
Beyond Boundaries’ center-based locations in Riverhead, Islandia, and New Hyde Park provide a variety of therapeutic evaluations and services to individuals with developmental and behavioral disabilities and their families. Providing services in the home, community, school districts, and at their locations, Beyond Boundaries also accepts insurance for Applied Behavior Analysis, considered the most effective treatment for autism.
“From the beginning, Beyond Boundaries’ goal has been to increase access to high quality services, one community at a time,” said Lauren Marra, who is the president and managing partner.
Beyond Boundaries’ family of services in Riverhead includes KIDZ Therapy Services, one of Long Island’s largest providers of evaluations and services designed to enhance the development of infants and preschoolers with special needs. KIDZ Therapy Services is approved by New York State as a multi-disciplinary provider of early intervention and preschool special education evaluations, services, and programs.
