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 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, this integrated cancer care delivery model connects patients to world-class, coordinated cancer treatment. 

Through the MaineHealth Cancer Care Network, our health network 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.
