Providing Eastern Connecticut Cancer Care For Decades

While the Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute at Backus Hospital has a new name, it has the same trusted team of physicians who have been providing care to the Eastern Connecticut community for decades.

The experts at Eastern Connecticut Hematology and Oncology provide personalized, coordinated and compassionate care – close to home for patients.

And because of our Cancer Institute’s charter membership in the prestigious Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) Cancer Alliance, cancer patients at Backus are treated according to MSK’s world-class standard of care, and have access to MSK clinical trials.
