Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is ranked # 2 in the nation among the top the hospitals specializing in cancer care.  This marks the 27th year that MSK has been recognized as one of the nation’s top 2 cancer hospitals. The Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute is proud to be the charter member of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Alliance.  The Cancer Institute is comprised of five cancer centers — one at each of Hartford HealthCare’s acute care hospitals across Connecticut.
