The Solomont Center for Hematology and Medical Oncology offers specialty treatment for patients with malignant and non-malignant blood disorders and cancer. The Center provides diagnostic services, innovative treatments, and comprehensive care to patients by an outstanding, nationally recognized, multidisciplinary team of hematologists, oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, oncology nurses, social workers, and dieticians. Located in the J. Joseph Moakley Building, the Center provides state-of-the-art cancer treatment. The Center’s physicians are full-time staff members at Boston Medical Center and on the faculty at Boston University School of Medicine.
The Infusion Suite, where patients receive chemotherapy, is housed in the Center and provides patients with the utmost privacy, comfort, and convenience. The Suite includes private rooms with beds as well as bays with large reclining chairs for patients and comfortable seating for those who accompany them. Patient Navigators (experts trained to help patients overcome their barriers to care), social workers, and dieticians are also located in the Infusion Suite and are available to help patients with any needs that may arise during their visit. A specialty pharmacy is conveniently located on the floor for prescription drop-off and pick-up, allowing patients to fill many of their medications without leaving the area. All of the nurses working in the Infusion Suite have successfully completed the Chemotherapy Biotherapy Certificate Course administered by the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS), and most are also OCN® (Oncology Certified Nurse) certified. Ten were nominated by their patients for CURE magazine's 2014 Extraordinary Healer Award. Learn more about the award and read the winning essays here.
