Message from the Division Chief, Neal Meropol, MD


Welcome to the Division of Hematology and Oncology. With more than 60 members, the Division of Hematology and Oncology is among the largest within the Department of Medicine, and has a scope of activities that span our research, patient care and educational missions.

Our nationally recognized faculty members have expertise and interest in benign hematologic conditions, including coagulation disorders and hemoglobinopathies, as well as hematologic and solid tumor malignancies. Our faculty members include physician-scientists and PhDs conducting laboratory research, as well as clinical researchers and clinical members focused on patient care and teaching. In addition to training medical students, basic science graduate students, post-docs and medical residents, we have an ACGME-accredited Hematology and Oncology fellowship program. We provide care at the University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center main campus, the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, and through a vast regional network of community practices, all of which participate in clinical trials research. Nineteen of our division members were recognized as “Best Doctors” by Cleveland Magazine in 2016.

The Division of Hematology and Oncology is closely aligned with University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center, a principal member of the NCI-designated Case Comprehensive Cancer Center (which successfully renewed its NCI P30 support grant in 2013) and our faculty play key roles in cancer center research and clinical activities.

U.S. News & World Report ranked Cancer in the top 28 hospitals in the nation in 2016-2017
