The Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute at The Hospital of Central Connecticut is transforming the delivery of cancer care to patients across central Connecticut and beyond.

This spacious and welcoming facility that opened in spring 2015 is bringing leading-edge cancer care in a warm, compassionate setting. The goal behind everything we do is to make the journey of care as easy as possible. We offer a wide variety of comforts and amenities designed to reduce the anxiety and fear that often comes with a cancer diagnosis. All patients who walk through our doors are greeted by a team of patient ambassadors who answer any questions and help guide patients to the areas where they need to go for care.


Patient Ambassadors

Our patient ambassador team is trained to do all the things, both big and small, that can help put patients and their families and loved ones at ease. Besides our ambassadors, we offer:

  • Ample and convenient parking, including a drop-off space at the entrance to the cancer center.
  • Music in the main entryway from a player piano as well as professional musicians.
  • A warm, welcoming entry area that features a stone-inlaid fireplace and staircase.
  • Numerous fireplaces situated in patient areas throughout the building.
  • A serene reflection garden, with a walking path and a small pond, in the back of the building.
  • An infusion center featuring private bays where patients can watch high-definition TV or look out the window to a sweeping view of the woods and walking path in the rear of the building.
  • Music in the main entryway from a player piano as well as professional musicians.
