Yale New-Haven Cancer Network & Clinical Trials
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.
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.
