Connecticut children's hospital to build new outpatient cancer center

Hartford Courant, March 19, 2010

Leaders at Connecticut Children's Medical Center announced plans for a new, $5 million outpatient center to give its cancer and blood disorders program the space to match its increased demand. When it opened 14 years ago, Connecticut Children's Medical Center had space to accommodate 5,500 outpatient visits a year to the program. Since then, the number of annual patient visits has come close to 10,000. The Clinical Care Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders will cover 8,000 square feet on the hospital's fifth floor, doubling the space devoted to outpatient hematology and oncology services, the Hartford Courant reports.
