We're transforming the delivery of cancer care to patients across central Connecticut and beyond.

20160706-Cancer-Center-at-THOCC.jpgThis spacious and welcoming facility that opened in spring 2015 is bringing leading-edge cancer care in a warm, compassionate setting. The goal behind everything we do is to make the journey of care as easy as possible. We offer a wide variety of comforts and amenities designed to reduce the anxiety and fear that often comes with a cancer diagnosis. All patients who walk through our doors are greeted by a team of patient ambassadors who answer any questions and help guide patients to the areas where they need to go for care.

The Latest Treatment/Technology

The Cancer Institute also features the latest advances in treatment and technology in a warm and welcoming environment.

Here are some of the highlights of the expansive facility on the Plainville-New Britain town line:

  • The new center is part of the Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute, which is the charter member of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Alliance. MSK is the premier cancer center in the country, and treatment standards within the Hartford HealthCare Institute are aligned with MSK. Patients also have access to MSK’s world renowned clinical research trials and protocols.
  • Over 100,000 square feet of clinical and medical office space focused on the cancer care needs of the Greater New Britain community, making it easily the largest facility dedicated to cancer care in the region.
  • Comprehensive breast health center that will feature full-service care for breast cancer patients, from diagnosis to treatment to survivorship.
  • State-of-the-art radiation therapy featuring the most advanced technology, including intensity modulated radiation therapy and Novalis radiosurgery..
  • The latest in imaging technology, including MRI and PET-CT scanning.
