McGivney Cancer Center- Hamden Campus

In 2009, the cancer services from the McGivney Cancer Center were extended to 2080 Whitney Avenue in Hamden. All of the needs of the people we serve are met at this facility by a multidisciplinary and caring staff. A state of the art Electa Synergy linear accelerator with IGRT cone beam CT was installed in addition to a Siemens 24 slice CT simulator. The accelerator has been upgraded with the latest technology including VMAT (volumetric modulated arc therapy). A full complement of treatment related software is available for use by the clinical staff including Monaco utilizing Monte Carlo algorithms. The center utilizes an electronic medical record thereby facilitating an easy transition between facilities. There is a video conferencing system set up in the dedicated conference room allowing remote participation in tumor boards. There is a full complement of staff including a full time senior dosimetrist. Services include nutritional and social services as well as a boutique.
