Why Choose Our Cancer Care?
Every day, Central Maine Healthcare helps patients throughout our community bring their best to the battle against cancer. Here are just a few of the ways we’re bringing hope and healing to our communities:
Everybody Working Together to Beat Cancer
At Central Maine Comprehensive Cancer Center (CMCCC), all the treatment you need is together under one roof: surgery, radiation and medical oncology. That’s not only convenient for you but it allows us to easily unify our efforts. Our doctors, specialists, and nurses – plus social workers, dietitians, rehabilitation therapists and more – all work near each other and closely together to consider and regularly discuss the treatment plan that will produce the best possible results for each patient.
Commitment to Patients
Many of our nurses and therapists have been working with Central Maine Healthcare for 15 – 20 years, showing great dedication to their patients and devotion to the central Maine community.
Fast Diagnosis, Quick Path to Treatment
Our onsite labs allow us to make fast, accurate diagnoses. And if you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, we understand you want to start treatment as soon as possible. Our radiation therapy group is set up to get you in quickly, so you can begin on the road to better health.
Infusion Centers Throughout Central Maine
Whether you’re near Central Maine Medical Center, Bridgton Hospital or Rumford Hospital, you’re close to one of our dedicated infusion centers. That means you can receive cancer treatment close to home.
CMCCC is Fully Accredited and Often Awarded
We’ve been recognized one of America’s Best Hospitals for Cancer Care by the Women’s Choice Award and accredited by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) as a Comprehensive Community Cancer Program, American Society of Clinical Oncologists’ Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI), the American College of Radiology (ACR), and NAPBC.
Friendly, Compassionate Care
We’re proud of the sense of family our caregivers feel at CMCCC. You’re not just a number on a medical chart. We know your name and make a point of getting to know you and your family. We believe it’s the best way to provide a comfortable, healing environment that allows excellent care.
