New Britain General campus:
Radiation therapy uses a beam of high-energy radiation to destroy cancer cells. It can be used alone or with surgery, chemotherapy and/or other treatments.
The Hospital of Central Connecticut's Radiation Oncology staff includes board-certified radiation oncologists, therapists registered by The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, registered nurses, physicists, administrative staff, a radiation safety officer and social worker. All are committed to supporting our patients and helping them understand their treatment and manage side effects.
Most radiation therapy is performed on an outpatient basis in the American Savings Foundation Radiation Oncology Treatment Center behind the main entrance to the New Britain General campus.
The center offers advanced technology, comfortable exam rooms, a bright waiting area with puzzles, reading material and a computer and convenient patient pick-up and drop-off areas. Free parking is available in front of and next to the building.
The center offers the most advanced radiation therapy treatments for brain, lung, breast, prostate and a wide variety of other cancers.
