Central Maine Medical Center’s (CMMC) Inpatient Oncology Unit is designed to keep you and your family as comfortable as possible. You’ll be cared for by a multidisciplinary care team, specially trained to treat and support people with cancer.
A Place to Heal
Cancer treatments often weaken your immune system. CMMC’s Inpatient Oncology Unit is designed to keep you as safe as possible from infection. And for patients who have undergone complicated surgeries, the inpatient unit ensures close follow-up during the important post-operation phase of treatment.
Focused Care in a Compassionate Environment
Central Maine Comprehensive Cancer Center caregivers treat each patient based on his or her specific needs and the requirements of their particular cancer. In all aspects of this care we encourage patient and family participation and work to support your physical, psychological and spiritual well-being.
Specialized for Cancer Care
In addition to certified oncology specialists, we support cancer patients with services like palliative care, counseling for patients and their loved ones, and nurse navigators to guide you through the entire process. The registered nurses on the inpatient unit have specialized training in chemotherapy administration, as well as symptom management and palliative care.
The inpatient unit has private rooms for patients designed to help you feel at home. A unique feature of the unit is a spacious solarium that provides a cheerful place for patients and families to enjoy the sense of being outdoors, while remaining near medical resources.
