Specialty Programs & Services

The Harold Leever Regional Cancer Center
The mission of the Harold Leever Regional Cancer Center, a partnership between Waterbury Hospital and St. Mary’s Hospital, is to provide cancer care for the community that offers the most current therapies and coordinates the efforts of the many providers of cancer care in one convenient location.
If you are undergoing treatment for cancer you may qualify for participation in a clinical trial; organized research programs that help doctors understand which treatment is best for a particular disease or type of disease.
Questions a clinical trial may try to answer are: Is the new treatment safe? Is it effective? Is it better than other treatments? These programs are voluntary, meaning you may choose to participate or decline.
