With the increasing demand for advanced approaches to cancer care in the national capital region (NCR), Johns Hopkins Medicine, through the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, is integrating our excellent oncology services for patients at Sibley Memorial Hospital and Suburban Hospital. This move will make innovative treatment options more accessible for patients and families. For instance, Johns Hopkins and Children’s National Health System opened a joint pediatric radiation oncology program at Sibley, where the first patient was treated in July. A new and expanded oncology clinic with 34 private infusion rooms also recently opened at Sibley. As the rest of the new Sibley Memorial Hospital opens this fall, a dedicated inpatient oncology unit will allow for fully coordinated care for acutely ill patients. We expect that in 2019 at Sibley, cancer patients in the NCR suffering from certain complex cancers will be able to take advantage of advanced proton beam therapy, which targets a tumor with minimal impact to surrounding tissue.
