Kent Hospital is pleased to announce the addition of Bachir J. Sakr, MD, to The Breast Health Center at Kent. Dr. Sakr serves as an attending medical oncologist and the medical director of the Kent Hospital Infusion Center, while also working at Woman & Infants Hospital, where he has been since 2007.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Dr. Sakr to the The Breast Health Center at Kent,” said Sandra Coletta, president and CEO. “He brings with him extensive clinical expertise that will serve to enhance the high quality of care patients here already receive. His knowledge and expertise will provide a tremendous resource to our community.”
Dr. Sakr completed his residency in internal medicine at Detroit Medical Center in Detroit, MI. He then went on to do a fellowship in hematology/oncology at The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. In addition to his work at Kent (which will also include his involvement in the Institutional Review Board, the hospital’s tumor board and its breast specific joint tumor board) and Women & Infants, Dr. Sakr also serves as clinical assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at The Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University.
The Breast Health Center at Kent draws on the expertise of specialty-trained physicians who are national leaders in breast health. The quality and level of care brought to this collaboration by Women & Infants enhances and broadens Kent Hospital’s commitment to providing its patients with access to the best possible care in this region. Instead of traveling to Boston, or even Providence, those seeking expert medical advice and cutting-edge treatment can find it at The Breast Health Center at Kent. The physician director is Dr. Candace Dyer. For more information log on to the website at www.kenthospital.org or call the Breast Health Center at 401-736-3737.
