Hartford HealthCare, Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center form alliance

Hartford Courant, September 19, 2013
It can take years for the kind of cutting-edge medical treatment performed in clinical trials to become routine practice at hospitals across the country, but Hartford HealthCare officials say a partnership with Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center means that many patients in the state will get that treatment much sooner. The partnership, called the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Alliance, was announced Tuesday by officials from Hartford HealthCare, a network that includes Hartford Hospital, and Sloan-Kettering, a leading cancer center based in New York City. It will establish clinical trials in Connecticut and share Sloan-Kettering's resources with the health network's physicians.
