Memorial Healthcare System opened a new oncology practice and treatment center for Memorial Cancer Institute and Moffitt Malignant Hematology and Cellular Therapy at Memorial. The new location offers expert medical oncologists and hematologists and expands innovative cancer care in Hallandale Beach, at 1750 E. Hallandale Beach Boulevard. This space was designed to offer advanced treatment options in a setting that promotes healing and respects the needs of patients and their families.

At the new 8,365 square-foot facility, patients can expect:

  • Consultations and visits with expert cancer physicians
  • Private infusion bays
  • Cancer support services including: patient navigation, financial navigation, image recovery, nutrition and social services
  • A multilingual staff who speak Hebrew, Spanish, Russian and Creole, with professional translators available
  • Ample ground floor parking and wheelchair accessibility
  • Expanded hours
  • Coffee bar and boxed lunches for long treatment days

This experienced team of medical oncologists and hematologists has been caring for patients in South Florida for over 30 years. Robert Hirsch, MD, and Frederick Wittlin, MD, formerly in Aventura, will now see patients with solid tumors and with benign hematology diseases at the new Hallandale Beach location. Moffitt Malignant Hematology and Cellular Therapy expert hematologists, Hugo Fernandez, MD, Yehuda Deutsch, MD, and Fernando Vargas, MD will see patients with malignant hematology diseases and provide consults for cellular therapies, including bone marrow/stem cell transplants and CAR-T therapies.

“Our team is proud to offer expert oncology services at a thoughtful, new location with enhanced accessibility for our patients and extended reach into the community,” said Dr. Hirsch. “We will continue to work as a multidisciplinary team of experts to offer integrated cancer treatments at our new home in Hallandale Beach.”

“The new Hallandale Beach location provides additional space and resources for cancer experts from Memorial Cancer Institute and Moffitt Malignant Hematology and Cellular Therapy at Memorial to grow and continue to offer advanced treatment options in a new facility designed to meet the needs of our patients and their families and support healing,” said Meredith Feinberg, vice president, oncology services, Memorial Healthcare System.

Memorial Cancer Institute is one of the largest cancer centers in Florida, treating more than 4,600 new patients each year. Memorial Cancer Institute, with research partner Florida Atlantic University, became one of only five programs designated by the Department of Health as a “Cancer Center of Excellence in Florida,” they provide diagnosis, integrated treatment, support services, clinical trials and research customized for patients and families in an environment close to home.

Part of Memorial Healthcare System, Memorial Cancer Institute will soon open a new free-standing facility on the campus of Memorial Hospital West in Pembroke Pines that will include radiation oncology, breast oncology, hematology-oncology, and Moffitt Malignant Hematology and Cellular Therapy at Memorial. It will also feature private infusion bays, a boutique and salon, conference center, physician offices, meditation room and a rooftop garden that will cement Memorial’s place as a home for world-class cancer treatment, research and high quality patient and family-centered care.

This Memorial Cancer Institute location is relocating from Aventura to Hallandale Beach, leaving space for Memorial Neuroscience Institute to expand its presence in Aventura.
