We are reinventing what's possible at a community hospital. This means offering the best in cancer technology for diagnosis and treatment.
The Middlesex Health Cancer Center offers today's most high-tech cancer radiation therapies at both locations - Middletown and Westbrook. We create and customize treatment plans to optimize your outcomes while minimizing harm to healthy tissue so that you recover more quickly.
Novalis Tx® Linear Accelerator: We are one of just five facilities in CT to offer this precision technology.
Elekta Linear Accelerator: Our Shoreline facility is home to CT's newest radiation therapy machine, which is especially beneficial for patients with left-sided breast cancer.
Deep Inspiration Breath-Hold Technique: Our radiation therapy machines sync with a patient's breathing to reduce damage to healthy tissue.
SpaceOAR System: An injectable gel creates space around the prostate to limit the effects of radiation on the GI system and surrounding tissue.
Highly specialized surgeons at Middlesex Health use the latest in advanced surgical technology - the da Vinci® SI Surgical Robot - to perform the most complex and delicate surgical procedures with unmatched precision.
Radiology: Diagnostic Imaging
Wide Open Bore MRI: This new alternative to traditional and open MRI - which has a larger opening and shorter length - helps patients experience less anxiety and claustrophobia. In addition, these "high-field" units produce crisp, clear images so doctors can make an accurate diagnosis.
