“We are very pleased to welcome Dr. Murphy to Kent Hospital and are greatly looking forward to expanding our surgical services to the patients of our community,” said Sandra L. Coletta, president and CEO of Kent Hospital. Murphy is board certified and works with a team of medical and radiation oncologists so patients are offered a multidisciplinary approach to cancer care. In addition to being part of the surgical program at Kent, she has also joined the surgical staff at Women & Infants Hospital and is on staff at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.

Her clinical interests include colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulitis and fecal incontinence. In addition, she is now bringing to Kent advanced laparoscopic colorectal surgery, transanal microscopic surgery and sphincter sparing surgery. •
