Specialty Tumor Conference Referral Procedures

MaineHealth Cancer Care seeks to leverage expertise from across the entire system to provide excellent care to patients, regardless of where they live. To pursue this goal, we have streamlined the process for providers to present cases to MaineHealth Maine Medical Center and MaineGeneral Medical Center (our largest cancer center.) 

The section below provides information on how to refer a patient to a specialty tumor conference, and in many cases, guidelines on the types of cases that should be presented.
