VA Connecticut Healthcare System

 

Comprehensive Cancer Center (West Haven)

The Cancer Center offers comprehensive, multidisciplinary care for patients with cancer, including surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, palliative care, and clinical trials. We also offer a complete array of supportive services including health psychology, physical therapy, nutrition, education, survivorship care, social work, chaplain services, and alternative and complementary medicine. Our care is patient-centered and coordinated with the help of a state-of-the-art electronic medical record. Most of the services are delivered in our newly renovated Cancer Center, located in West Haven, Building 2, 5th floor. We are fully accredited by the American College of Surgeons and received The Outstanding Achievement Award in 2014. We have a team of dedicated professionals who believe that our Veterans deserve the best care available. Our VA has taken the lead in several aspects of cancer care. We were the first VA in the nation to offer comprehensive cancer care coordination services. Our coordinators are alerted electronically to all new cancers, they expedite care and they serve as a point of contact for the veteran and their families as they go through the diagnostic and staging process. 

We are also an integral part of the Yale Cancer Center. The physicians hold academic appointments at Yale and play a major role in the fellowship training program and the research programs.
