The C. Anthony and Jean Whittingham Cancer Center
On October 29, 2016, Norwalk Hospital cut the ribbon on the C. Anthony and Jean Whittingham Cancer Center, a 35,000 square-foot facility, which doubles the Hospital’s existing cancer treatment space and combines the latest in life-saving technologies with the medical expertise and personalized care the community has come to rely upon.
Features of the Whittingham Cancer Center include an outdoor healing garden for patients, families and caregivers, contemporary consultation rooms and patient space with media and refreshments, two private infusion suites, 18 light-filled infusion bays with views of Long Island Sound, a dedicated CT Simulator and two state-of-the-art linear accelerators. The Center also includes spacious areas for patient support services and for the Hospital’s extensive clinical trials and collaborative research with nationally recognized cancer research centers.
Through a pioneering collaboration with the world-renowned Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK), Norwalk Hospital’s C. Anthony and Jean Whittingham Cancer Center is taking its respected cancer program to an even higher level. Now, Memorial Sloan Kettering medical and radiation oncologists are onsite at Norwalk Hospital leading and delivering team-based care alongside Norwalk Hospital’s own cancer experts. It’s a powerful collaboration that offers both advanced science and highly personalized care. And, for patients, that adds up to more than a fighting chance.
