Our popular fitness center enjoys more than 60,000 visits a year and recently celebrated its 30th anniversary.

Visitors are greeted by our friendly staff to make sure every exercise session feels like a welcome visit.

Our award-winning center is equipped with state-of-the-art exercise equipment.

The workout circuit includes bicycles, treadmills, weight lifting stations and an indoor walking track.

All patients are prescreened for an appropriate fitness plan to ensure all of their cardiac needs are met.

The Cancer Institute at St. Francis Hospital

The need for a dedicated Cancer Institute at St. Francis Hospital is clear. Before St. Francis Hospital formalized its cancer care services, more than 1,000 new cancer diagnoses were being made at the hospital each year. Patients who depended upon the hospital for their cardiac care were now in need of the best in cancer care as well.

Responding to this urgent need, St. Francis Hospital committed to a $30 million investment in facilities, technology and enhancements. Just two miles from the main campus, construction is underway on an outpatient cancer center at 2200 Northern Boulevard in East Hills. Here, we are creating the capacity to provide expanded services in infusion therapy, advanced imaging and radiation oncology.

“Our mission is to put our heart into cancer care. The goal for St. Francis Hospital is to take what is so great about the Heart Center, which is nationally recognized for its individualized care and compassion, and put these qualities into the care of cancer patients,” said Bhoomi Mehrotra, M.D., Director of Oncology and Director of The Cancer Institute at St. Francis Hospital.

We ask you to join us in making the difference for our friends, neighbors, and loved ones facing the challenges of cancer. Your support will extend far beyond the physical spaces we create or the technology acquired. It will inspire hope and new options in care for thousands of patients each year.
