MaineHealth Cancer Care offers integrated medical oncology and hematology services. We provide diagnosis, treatment, care coordination and support for patients throughout their cancer journey. We are part of the MaineHealth Cancer Care Network, an integrated care system that delivers highly-coordinated, state-of-the-art, cancer care close to home.
Our board-certified providers and compassionate staff understand the needs and concerns of cancer patients and their families. We want you to feel comfortable with your care team and confident that you are receiving the most clinically-advanced treatment possible. We also believe in shared-decision making and develop highly-individualized treatment strategies that meet each patient's unique needs and preferences.
What is medical oncology?
Medical oncology is a critical component in modern cancer care. Oncologists drive care plan development—managing therapies as well as coordinating care among other cancer specialists who focus on prevention, treatment and clinical trials.
What is hematology?
Hematologists are specifically trained in the diagnosis and treatment of blood disorders. This includes conditions affecting red and white blood cells, platelets, lymph nodes, bone marrow, blood vessels, and the spleen.
Seamless Care Coordination and Support
MaineHealth Cancer Care provides radiation therapy, IV therapy, and blood disorder services. We also maintain close communication with your primary care provider and extended care team. Our practice coordinates needed care at other cancer care locations, including Portland, Scarborough, Sanford and Bath. Cancer support services also include clinical patient navigators, financial patient navigators and social workers.
Oncology Patient Financial Navigators
Many patients tell us they are worried about how much their treatment will cost and how they will pay for it. MaineHealth Oncology Patient Financial Navigators can help answer your insurance questions, explain your benefits, and set up a payment plan for out of-pocket costs.
