Hartford HealthCare HealthCenter - Manchester

We bring high-quality healthcare closer to people living east of Hartford with a facility specializing in advanced cancer services.

Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute - Manchester
The new three-story center was developed with the patient’s comfort and convenience in mind. In multi-specialty offices on the second floor, patients can see specialists in breast care, urology, thoracic cancer and more.

The third floor is dedicated to a 6,200-square foot Infusion Center that includes 15 private patient areas large enough for the patients to recline comfortably and have a friend or loved sitting beside them during treatment. Each patient area offers wifi and private television and there is an outdoor terrace for patients and family members to enjoy in the warmer weather.
