At the Forefront of Cancer Research

catholic health roswell park logo

Catholic Health is pushing the boundaries in cancer treatment. Our affiliation with Roswell Park, one of the nation’s leading cancer research centers, gives Long Islanders exclusive access to the newest and most innovative treatments available only through clinical trials.

Our partnership with Roswell Park brings together physicians, hospitals and care teams across New York State to create a community-based care network focused on improving cancer care. St. Francis Hospital & Heart Center® and Good Samaritan Hospital are also members of the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology.

The Future of Cancer Therapy

Clinical trials play an essential role in the fight against cancer. They are the only scientific way to prove a new treatment works better than the current standard of care. Some clinical trials test a drug, a medical device or a new way of doing surgery. Other trials test new ways to prevent disease, diagnose cancer or improve quality of life.

Roswell Park provides helpful resources to learn more about clinical trials:
