Hematology oncology group joins Mohawk Valley Health System

By Eric Reinhardt (



UTICA, N.Y. — The hematology/oncology group of Drs. Atul Butala, Samir Desai, and Alicia DeTraglia on Monday joined the Mohawk Valley Health System (MVHS) Medical Group.

The new name of the practice will be the MVHS Hematology/Oncology Group.

The offices of Drs. Butala, Desai and DeTraglia — located in Utica (at the MVHS Faxton campus), Rome, and Herkimer — will remain in their current locations and the contact information will also remain the same, MVHS said in a release.

“Drs. Desai and DeTraglia and I have run our practice out of the Faxton campus for many years, so we see it as a smooth transition to now work in partnership with MVHS and its cancer center,” Butala said. “We want to assure our patients that they will have the same providers and experience they have always had with us. We are excited about this new partnership with MVHS and look forward to helping to strengthen cancer diagnosis and treatment in our region.”

The MVHS Hematology/Oncology Group says it is accepting new patients.
