Led by Joel Saltzman, MD, section head of Medical Oncology at University Hospitals in the Division of Hematology/Oncology and director for Medical Oncology at Lake Health/University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center; Maria Espinosa, MD; and Willem van Heeckeren, MD, PhD, Lake Health/University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center has the expertise to treat all types of cancer that affect the human body.

Another feature that distinguishes Lake Health/University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center from other cancer treatment facilities in Northeast Ohio is our pharmacy. In this clinical field where precision is a must, Lake Health/University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center offers the highest standard of care in utilizing our physician, pharmacist, and nursing staff to guide you during your course of treatment.

In addition to cancer care, we treat a variety of hematology diseases and lymphomas. We also provide infusion therapy for rheumatoid arthritis and muscular scelerosis upon referral from your physician. A spacious state-of-the-art chemotherapy administration unit is staffed by oncology nurses whose clinical experience is outweighed only by their compassion for providing care.
