Cancer Treatment Alliance Formed

Hartford Healthcare is teaming up with a world-renowned cancer treatment center.

HHC is teaming up with New York-based Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center as a charter member of the alliance.

That means patients in the alliance will have access to the top cancer doctors and researchers in the country.

In addition, clinical trials will begin soon in Connecticut.

Hartford Hospital surgical oncologist David Eisenberg says he saw the benefits of a partnership during his own battle with lymphoma.

The partnership is the culmination of about a year of discussions.
