New York, NY, March 29, 2021- New York Cancer & Blood Specialists (NYCBS), one of the leading oncology practices in the nation, today announced it has teamed with AdvantageCare Physicians (ACPNY), one of New York’s largest primary and specialty care practices, to strengthen the comprehensive care model for hematology-oncology in the New York area.


“We are proud to team up with NYCBS, which has committed to providing patients with quality, comprehensive cancer treatment,” said Dr. Navarra Rodriguez, Chief Medical Officer of ACPNY. “Our aim of caring for the community directly connects with the NYCBS’ mission of conquering cancer close to home. Together, we have the opportunity to serve our communities better.”


ACPNY’s comprehensive care model, which focuses on “caring for the whole patient”- from wellness and preventative care to chronic disease management all under one roof aligns with NYCBS’s value-based and patient-centered approach. By joining forces, ACPNY will find a unique path to treatment with comprehensive support. NYCBS will further its mission to exceed comprehensive care initiatives across the entire cancer care continuum.


“We look forward to building a great collaboration with ACPNY,” said Jeff Vacirca, MD, CEO of New York Cancer & Blood Specialists. “This will ensure the continuity of care that the ACPNY patients have come to expect from their wonderful providers, and at the same time, enable their patients to have the advantages brought to them by one of the nation’s largest oncology networks and the region’s most dedicated cancer care providers.”


NYCBS will begin providing health care services at ACPNY’s Forest Hills office and will then roll out across other ACPNY sites throughout New York.
