In January 2006, Dr. Erole Hobdy opened the doors of Virgin Islands Oncology and Hematology on the second floor of the VI Medical Foundation Building directly behind the hospital. Dr. Hobdy, a native of Jamaica, had been living on the island for two years and was impressed by the number of people who were being diagnosed with cancer and who were leaving the island for cancer care. With her medical degree and training from Columbia University in New York and her cancer training from Yale Cancer Center, Dr. Hobdy felt that she could and should do her part in providing an option for patients to receive cancer care locally in the Virgin Islands. Dr. Hobdy’s belief was, and still is, that people living in the Caribbean should feel confident and comfortable that they can get good care at home.
The dedicated staff works in conjunction with the physicians of Virgin Islands Oncology & Hematology to provide exceptional healthcare to the patients. Oncology and Hematology provides prompt, quality service in a pleasant environment.
The vision and mission of Virgin Islands Oncology & Hematology is to provide access to unparalleled high quality care to the people of the Virgin Islands and to raise the awareness of cancer in community and to the rest of the Caribbean.
