More options, more hope in your cancer care

The Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute brings you more access to cancer care in Eastern Connecticut. With offices in Norwich, Plainfield, Waterford and Windham, we offer a full range of diagnostic, treatment, education, and support services, all close to home.

As the charter member of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Alliance, we bring you more access to world-renowned clinical research trials. The Cancer Institute also follows the cancer treatment standards and protocols developed at Memorial Sloan Kettering, the premier cancer treatment center in the country.

Our multidisciplinary team of nurses and physicians includes specialized medical and radiation oncologists to treat your cancer, along with access to surgeons who specialize in breast, gynecology, thoracic, urology, and gastroenterology should the need arise.

Our nurses play a key role on your cancer care team, providing the most hands-on care during your treatment. Our nursing team brings extraordinary knowledge and experience to your care. All of our nurses are certified by the Oncology Nurses Society to safely administer chemotherapy and immunotherapy, while many carry the distinguished Oncology Nurse Certification.

We provide more hope and healing for the many emotional issues cancer patients can face. We provide you with access to the state’s most comprehensive behavioral health network and complimentary therapies. We also offer access to integrated medicine, which provides services and education to complement and enhance the mind, body, and spirit.

From diagnosis, through treatment, recovery and survivorship — Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute is offering more … for you.
