Radiation Oncology at David H. Koch Center
Weill Cornell Medicine/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital opened the David H. Koch Center in April 2018. Located on 1283 York Avenue between East 68th and 69th Streets, this innovative facility offers individualized, integrated outpatient care—from diagnosis to treatment to aftercare.
Expert and supportive care, personalized to every patient
We take a personal approach to cancer care. Our expert radiation oncologists are faculty physicians from Weill Cornell Medicine. Alongside a team of other specialists, they design targeted cancer therapies to each patient’s individual tumor needs. Radiation therapy is administered in our supportive, beautiful facilities—where the only focus is our patients’ physical, psychological, and social wellbeing.
To complement radiation therapy, the David H. Koch Center also provides integrative health services (nutritional consultation, acupuncture, yoga, psychotherapy, massage, and others). These services are specifically designed to help patients relieve stress, achieve and maintain a healthy weight, build resilience, and optimize health.

What Our Patients Are Saying
"Dr. Ng is like my brother from another mother. He treated me with compassion, care and cooperation from day one just like a brother would his own sister. I felt so confident in his ability, insightful expertise and knowledge to help save me. You see I was told by another hospital that my tumor was inoperable and incurable. But Dr. Ng worked as a team with my oncologist and surgeon to give me a second chance at life. Today I am living my best life because of them all and I am eternally grateful!"
