The Stamford Hospital Carl & Dorothy Bennett Cancer Center is the newest member of the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Care Collaborative, and the first member from Connecticut.

Participation in the collaborative reflects the Bennett Cancer Center’s demonstrated commitment to excellence by meeting a wide array of standards and best practices.

As part of the membership process, the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center clinicians and other staff conducted an extensive review of Stamford’s outpatient medical oncology and radiation oncology practices and procedures, including patient safety protocols, nursing and pharmacy practices, chemotherapy administration, and information systems.

“We are proud to be the newest member joining the well-regarded and nationally recognized institutions behind the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Care Collaborative,” said Brian G. Grissler, President and CEO, Stamford Health. “As we prepare to open our new hospital in September, this relationship will expand our cancer expertise and solidify our vision to provide the best cancer care for our community today, while ensuring access to the latest in treatments and research for the future.”
