Stamford Hospital Carl & Dorothy Bennett Cancer Center has become the first institution in Connecticut to join the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Care Collaborative, based in Boston, Massachusetts. The move will allow Stamford medical professionals to consult with experts in the Boston facility for complex cases and access to research initiatives originating within the network. 

The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, known for cancer research breakthroughs and The Jimmy Fund Clinic focusing on pediatric oncology care, was established in 1947 for the treatment and research of cancer in adults and children. 

Stamford Health is a not-for-profit healthcare system in lower Fairfield County and is also affiliated with the New York-Presbyterian Healthcare System and serves as a teaching affiliate for Columbia University.stamford
