In 2014, HHC and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) formed a strategic partnership whose mission is to accelerate the transfer of knowledge from academic medical centers to community healthcare. In addition to adopting MSK standards of care, we collaborate on clinical trials and research in a variety of health services research areas such as geriatric oncology, palliative care and medical informatics.
