About the Cancer Institute

At the Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute, we believe your address shouldn’t determine the quality of care you can access quickly and easily.

Everyone deserves outstanding care close to home. Our statewide, coordinated network ensures that comprehensive cancer care is nearby – from diagnosis and treatment to specialized programs, clinical trials and survivorship help.

The Cancer Institute, headed by a visionary leadership team, offers the same high-quality care you’d get at an academic health system – but delivered in convenient community settings. Advanced treatments and services are available in offices and centers across our system – all offered by fellowship-trained experts in various types of cancer. World-class care is a short drive away.

These community efforts are enhanced by our membership in the Memorial Sloan Kettering Alliance. This connection offers invaluable access to current research trials that can connect you with the latest medications and treatments for your cancer. Often, you can join research trials from the convenience of your local Cancer Institute site.

We’ve also drafted standards that guarantee you will receive the same high level of care no matter which location you visit or provider you see. Our community approach to cancer treatment has been recognized nationally. In 2017, the Cancer Institute became one of only a few U.S. systems to earn the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer accreditation. Historically, such approval was only given to individual locations.



The Cancer Institute offers the same personalized, coordinated care you’d get at an academic health system but delivered in convenient community settings.

Here, you’ll find subspecialty-trained teams of experts who work together, and with you, on your specific care plan. They use the latest technology and specialized approaches with the goal of eliminating the cancer and restoring the patient’s quality of life.

We also offer dedicated navigators who advocate on your behalf throughout your cancer journey. They help you understand your disease, guide you through appointments, lend emotional support and offer healthy options to practice at home.

The Cancer Institute also plays a major role in Hartford HealthCare’s system-wide innovation and research efforts aimed at constantly evaluating what can be done better to help patients thrive and to create healthier communities.

It’s no surprise one-third of cancer patients in Connecticut choose Hartford HealthCare for their care. We treat about 6,000 of your neighbors and friends as new cancer patients each year, and we’d be honored to ensure you get the care you need and deserve, too.

A member of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Alliance, we provide innovative care close to home.

We offer the latest treatments through our ongoing membership in the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Alliance, which gives you access to the latest standards of care and clinical trials.
