Montefiore Einstein Comprehensive Cancer Center

Montefiore Einstein Comprehensive Cancer Center (MECCC), at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center, is a national leader in cancer research and clinical care located in the heart of Bronx, NY, one of the nation’s most ethnically diverse areas. Founded in 1971 and designated as an NCI Cancer Center in 1972 (the country’s fourth), MECCC combines the exceptional science of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine with the multidisciplinary clinical care of the Montefiore Health System. The mission of MECCC is to serve the unique cancer-related needs of one of the most diverse and socioeconomically disadvantaged populations in the U.S. and to reduce the burden of cancer in the Bronx and the nation through exceptional cancer research, education and training, and community outreach and engagement, as well as through the delivery of compassionate leading-edge care for all - including historically marginalized communities that face heightened inequities in cancer and social determinants of health.
