Cancer care innovations at your doorstep

A message from the president of Greenwich Hospital

These days, we often read about major research breakthroughs that promise to dramatically shift the paradigm of cancer care, from targeted radiation treatments to minimally invasive surgery to personalized immunotherapy that hunts down and kills cancer cells.

The innovations, though, do not happen in a vacuum. They require a dedicated team of clinicians and scientists working together to eradicate cancer. As you will read in our cover story, Eric Winer, MD, the new director of Yale Cancer Center and physician-in-chief of Smilow Cancer Network, is committed to expanding the impact of our clinical and research breakthroughs for cancer patients and their loved ones. He also intends to strengthen the statewide network of Smilow Cancer Hospital Care Centers, such as the one in Greenwich.

At the Smilow Cancer Hospital Care Center in Greenwich, patients have access today to the advanced therapies of tomorrow, thanks to the combined efforts of Yale Cancer Center and Yale New Haven Health, a premier healthcare system. This collaboration enables Greenwich Hospital to not just stay at the forefront of cancer care, but to remain ahead of the curve.

To further enhance cancer care throughout the region, Greenwich Hospital has proposed building a new center across from the hospital. The center will provide patients with increased access to oncology specialists and subspecialists, advanced technology and therapies, and clinical trials of investigational drugs and procedures. These new offerings build upon our existing cancer resources, including diagnostic imaging, private oncology rooms, and women’s cancer services for breast and gynecologic cancers.

Given the growing prevalence of cancer in the region, Greenwich Hospital is committed to doing its part to bring us closer to a world free of cancer.

Diane P. Kelly, President
