For the third consecutive year, Yale-New Haven Hospital has been named by
U.S.News Media Group
to its national Honor Roll as one of the top hospitals in the United States. YNHH is ranked seventeenth in the U.S. according to the annual "America's Best Hospitals" rankings
In the cancer services category, Yale-New Haven Hospital moved from 29 to 21 after a significant increase in the reputation score. Our position is a reflection of the dedicated physicians and staff from Yale Cancer Center, Yale-New Haven Hospital, and Yale Medical Group. I look forward to working to help make the cancer center a top 10 center in the coming years.
Research Program Reviews
The mid-grant cycle reviews for each of the research programs are planned for this fall. Each program leader will be contacted in the coming weeks to schedule their program review.
External Scientific Advisory Board
We are in the initial planning stages for our annual External Scientific Advisory Board visit. The November meeting will include presentations from several of the research programs. Selected programs will be notified of the schedule in September.
Yale Cancer Center, Yale-New Haven Hospital, and Yale School of Medicine faculty and staff members are invited to participate in a tour of Smilow Cancer Hospital. The guided tours are available several times a week and show the exciting progress made on the building, which is scheduled to open on October 26th.
To schedule a tour of Smilow Cancer Hospital, please call Loren Bartley at 688-7544.
Participants must wear pants (no skirts or shorts), and sturdy, closed-toed shoes without heels. For safety reasons, anyone not dressed appropriately will be denied access to the site. YNHH provides construction helmets and safety goggles for use during the tour.
Shared Resource Highlight
The biostatistics shared resource provides active consultation for all phases of clinical and laboratory research in terms of planning, design, protocol preparation, and analysis. The program helps to identify quantifiable and relevant endpoints, which, in turn, allow for estimation of sample sizes and efficient estimation of scientifically interpretable parameters before the experiment is begun. During the conduct of clinical studies ongoing safety monitoring is offered. At completion, the program provides data analysis and assistance in manuscript preparation.
