Cancer Care

The Community Turns to Bristol Hospital for Cancer Care
 
Modern technology and treatment modalities. From mammography to CT and PET imaging, from Radiation Therapy to the latest National Cancer Institute (NCI) affiliated research trials through our affiliation with the  Yale-New Haven Cancer Network, the Bristol Hospital Cancer Care Center provides sophisticated treatment options and individualized, compassionate attention for patients and their families. The Bristol Hospital Cancer Care Center is approved with commendation by the American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer.
 
From our experienced team of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pain management specialists, urologists, surgeons and plastic/reconstructive surgeons, to other allied health professionals, such as our oncology-certified nurses, comes the recognition of the unique perspectives of each patient and family.
 
Bristol Hospital's Cancer Care Center. Our new, state-of-the-art Cancer Care Center is located on the main floor of Bristol Hospital with its own entrance and dedicated parking spaces located in front of the hospital. For the comfort of our patients, our Center includes private treatment rooms, a conference room, sunlit treatment and waiting areas equipped with wireless internet, flat-screen televisions and individual sound systems. There is a soothing water feature in the waiting area. The center is designed to enhance care in a supportive and pleasant, healing environment. Bristol Hospital's Cancer Care Center is dedicated to providing the very best cancer care locally, so that patients and their families do not have to travel long distances to receive cutting-edge cancer treatment.
 
The importance of communication. Our doctors and nurses talk to each other. They meet frequently at their multidisciplinary cancer conference to review current cancer cases. With the knowledge and expertise of a whole team of specialists behind them, they can help you navigate through the maze of choices to develop an integrated plan that fits your specific needs and lifestyle.
 
The role of the mind and spirit in healing. We hope you will utilize our complementary therapy offerings, like reiki therapy and support groups - all designed to help you take care of yourself and your family, while we focus on your cancer.

At every point along the path, our team is there, keeping the focus on the most important team member - the patient.
 

Yale-New Haven Cancer Network

Bristol Hospital's vision for cancer care is to provide access to the best quality care locally, so that patients do not have to travel long distances for treatment. The Bristol Hospital Cancer Care Center is affiliated with the Yale-New Haven Health System Network, which includes Yale-New Haven Hospital, Yale Cancer Center, and the Yale School of Medicine.
 
The affiliation provides Bristol Hospital physicians and clinical staff with information on the latest clinical treatments and research; access to clinical resources, cancer protocols and clinical trials; and the opportunity to network with Yale-New Haven Hospital and Yale Cancer Center specialists in medical oncology, surgical oncology, oncology nursing and other allied health professions. Yale physicians will come to Bristol Hospital to provide care in their disease specialty and Bristol Hospital patients will have access to Yale Cancer Center's programs and resources, including network clinical trials.
 

Clinical Trials

The Bristol Hospital Cancer Care Center collaborates with the Yale-New Haven Cancer Network to bring clinical trials to our patients. The Yale Cancer Center is the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in Connecticut. The National Cancer Institute sets the guidelines for how cancer patients are treated. Today's progress against cancer is the result of enhanced prevention strategies, along with earlier detection and better treatment - all made possible by years of dedicated research. Our affiliation with the Yale-New Haven Cancer Network provides access to the many multidisciplinary clinical programs to care for patients diagnosed with cancer. We share their goal - to improve the general day-to-day clinical care of cancer patients and to try to develop and offer program initiatives in prevention, early detection, screening and new therapies.
