Saint Francis Care has signed a Letter of Intent with Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven to officially explore a potential agreement to create an integrated oncology services program to serve the greater Hartford community. By combining the resources of two highly respected institutions, Smilow Cancer Hospital specialists will be able to provide expanded treatment options and research initiatives in collaboration with Saint Francis medical oncologists.
“Saint Francis will serve as the northern campus of Smilow Cancer Hospital and Yale Comprehensive Cancer Center,” according to Thomas Lynch, M.D., director, Yale Cancer Center and physician-in-chief, Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven. “This will mean that a full range of clinical trials will be available to patients in Hartford. Saint Francis doctors will join Smilow/Yale Disease programs. We will also bring the very latest clinical trial management, quality metrics and molecular profiling.”
