Providing World Class Cancer Care Close to Home
The best care at the right place at the right time, as close to home as possible. That is our highly integrated cancer care delivery model.
The MaineHealth Cancer Care Network is an innovative collaboration between MaineHealth members and affiliate hospitals delivering comprehensive, patient-centered care to patients in Maine and Mt. Washington Valley, New Hampshire.
Launched in 2017 in part with a $10 million grant from The Harold Alfond® Foundation and in affiliation with the pioneering oncology specialists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, this integrated cancer care delivery model connects patients to world-class, coordinated cancer treatment.
Through the MaineHealth Cancer Care Network our members, affiliates and expert providers work together to address cancer incidence and mortality in Maine. Together we have adopted strategies and guidelines to better serve the MaineHealth community.
The MaineHealth Cancer Care Network’s delivery model was developed with a goal of providing the right care in the right location as close to home as possible.
Advanced care services are provided in Boston at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
- Tertiary cancer services are provided at Maine Medical Center.
