A program of Peconic Bay Medical Center, in partnership with the Suffolk County Cancer Services Program, funded by the NYS Department of Health.
When it comes to cancer, early detection saves lives. At Peconic Bay Medical Center, our Suffolk County Cancer Services Program is regionally acclaimed for its proactive approach to patient care. We are here for you through every step of the process, from initial screening through creating an individualized, state-of-the-art cancer treatment plan.
There’s a reason why Peconic Bay Medical Center is considered a top Long Island medical center, and that’s because we put patients first. We believe that every person in Suffolk County deserves access to high-quality health care, especially cancer screenings. As part of our cancer services program, we offer free cancer screening to uninsured residents of Suffolk County who meet eligibility requirements.
Many factors contribute to your risk of developing cancer, including age, gender and genetics. Regular cancer screenings can help detect a problem in its earliest stages, increasing the chance of survival.
Breast, cervical and colon cancer often show no early symptoms, so screenings are the only safe route to early detection.
A cancer screening is a routine part of a comprehensive health exam. Knowing what to expect can help you prepare.
If screening tests find something abnormal, diagnostic testing services are available for eligible men and women at no cost.
If breast, cervical or colorectal cancer is found, eligible men and women may be able to enroll in the NYS Medicaid Cancer Treatment Program to receive full coverage for the entire time they are being treated for cancer.
Men diagnosed with prostate cancer by a doctor in this program may be able to enroll in the NYS Medicaid Cancer Treatment Program as well. (The Program does not offer free prostate cancer screening or diagnostic services).
Launched in collaboration with the North Fork Breast Health Coalition, the program will offer both in-person and virtual resources including support groups for patients who are 18 months from diagnosis of breast cancer and those with metastatic breast cancer.
