Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute
Hartford HealthCare, where 1 in 3 Connecticut residents receive their healthcare, invites neuro-oncologists to join our Cancer Institute and the Ayer Neurosciences Institute to advance our neuro-oncology clinical and research programs.
The current neuro-oncology team includes 2 APRN's, one RN, one Nurse Navigator, 2 Medical Assistants, and a dedicated neuro-oncology research nurse. We seek to expand our Neuro-Oncology Program with an additional, fellowship-trained neuro-oncologist. The ideal candidate would work closely with the Director of Neuro-Oncology, Alexis Demopoulos, to develop and deliver advanced treatment options through clinical research while providing comprehensive, coordinated, and outstanding clinical care for patients suffering from primary and secondary central nervous system neoplasms as well as the neurologic complications of cancer.
At Hartford HealthCare, our institute model combines an emphasis on compassionate, humanistic patient care with a dedication to clinical research and innovative program development within oncology and neurology. The Cancer Institute includes 40 medical oncologists and 17 radiation oncologists with a research program that includes a phase 1 unit for early drug development studies. The Ayer Neurosciences Institute comprises more than 220 neurology, neurosurgery and other providers in 22 sub-specialties. System wide we see over 100 primary brain cancers and over 100 spinal and peripheral neurologic tumors annually. In 2014, Hartford HealthCare and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) formed the MSK Cancer Alliance through which our cancer specialists collaborate with MSK for educational conferences and symposiums, tumor boards and research studies. HHC is also an active member of the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology and NRG Oncology and has access to clinical trials offered by these groups
Physicians would be clinically based at one hospital but actively engaged system-wide in quality, research and program development through our well established disease management teams and medical, radiation and surgical councils that together ensure one system standard and the promise to deliver the highest quality patient care throughout Hartford HealthCare.
