Massachusetts General Hospital Partnership
Streamlined access to one of the world's top cancer programs is available to patients at Central Maine Medical Center, Bridgton Hospital, Rumford Hospital, and Parkview Adventist Medical Center in Brunswick.
CMMC and the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Cancer Center have a collaborative program connecting patients from central, western and mid-coast Maine to cancer care subspecialists in Boston.
When patients need the services of a top academic cancer center, the MGH connection allows CMMC and its affiliated hospitals to quickly arrange their care at a world-renowned cancer program. The system is so well organized that patients needing an additional level of service are frequently astonished at how fast and seamlessly it can be delivered. Patients are sometimes seen within 24 hours of referral.
As importantly, once a patient has received specialty services at MGH, necessary follow-up services are often provided back home in Maine.
MGH has treatment programs for some 40 different cancers. In addition, the hospital's transportation system greatly eases the burden of travel for Maine patients.
