Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center — the world's oldest and largest private cancer center — has devoted more than 130 years to exceptional patient care, innovative research, and outstanding educational programs. Today Memorial Sloan Kettering is one of 41 National Cancer Institute–designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, with state-of-the-art science flourishing side by side with clinical studies and treatment.
Close collaboration between physicians and scientists is one of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s unique strengths, enabling us to provide patients with the best care available even as more effective strategies to prevent, control, and ultimately cure cancer are developed.

The medical staff encompasses nearly 1,000 attending physicians and more than 2,000 specially trained nurses with experience in oncology. Together, the medical team and support staff manage more than 20,000 surgical cases and 500,000 outpatient visits for patients across locations in Manhattan and the surrounding region.
