Affiliate Member of the Dana-Farber
We’re proud to be the first Affiliate Member of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, in recognition of our “demonstrated commitment to excellence by meeting a wide range of standards and best practices in adult medical oncology.”
This designation formalizes our relationship of more than 30 years with the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, and is part of our long tradition of collaboration with cancer specialists around New England and the world to advance the effectiveness of cancer treatment.
The benefits of Dana-Farber Affiliate Membership include:
- Even greater access to Dana-Farber specialists for second opinions and consultations—without having to travel to Boston—while at New England Cancer Specialists facilities or even from your home via telehealth
- Increased access to clinical trials and tumor board conferences, as well as expanded options for treatments based on the newest studies and research
- Enhancement to patient programs in areas such as palliative care, genetic counseling, and survivorship
Our Patient Care Teams will routinely review the latest information from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in preparing treatment plans for each patient. We encourage patients to ask your doctor any questions you have about how the Affiliate Membership might be involved in your care.
