The Cancer Care Program at Vanguard MacNeal is led by two UIC hematologist/oncologists, who are board-certified in internal medicine and hematology/oncology, and who work exclusively at Vanguard MacNeal. The physicians are compassionate patient advocates, who work tirelessly to provide all patients with excellent care.
