MaineHealth this week launched an expanded, integrated medical practice serving cancer patients in southern Maine.

MaineHealth Cancer Care is a medical oncology and hematology practice that combines existing medical groups at Maine Medical Center, Maine Medical Partners and Southern Maine Health Care, along with several recently recruited providers.

The practice will be based in Biddeford, Sanford and South Portland, and aims to offer patients greater, more timely access to specialists providing the latest in cancer treatment.

"MaineHealth is committed to providing patients and families in our communities with the highest quality, most coordinated and most compassionate care as close to home as possible, said Dr. Scot Remick, Maine Medical Center's chief of oncology, in a news release. "We are proud that our expanded medical oncology practice moves us closer to fulfilling this commitment."

Dr. Roger Inhorn, medical director of the MaineHealth Cancer Care practice, noted that medical oncologists are one of the most critical components to modern cancer care.

He added: “We have built an extraordinary team of medical oncologists and hematologists here at MaineHealth Cancer Care who will work hand in hand with our broad network of specialists to not only deliver personalized care and a world-class experience but to also earn the trust of patients and their families."

Other initiatives

The MaineHealth Cancer Care medical oncology and hematology practice builds on a significant and ongoing expansion in cancer care services by MaineHealth.

They include a $10 million investment from the Alfond Foundation to increase access and care coordination announced in 2017, and a $5.1 million federal grant announced earlier this month to expand access to clinical trials in rural areas.

As part of Maine Med's expansion and modernization in Portland, two new patient floors with 64 beds will be dedicated to surgical and medical oncology. The floors will be part of the newly named Coulombe Family Tower, which will be financed in part by a $7.5 million gift from Paul and Giselaine Coulombe and their daughter, Michelle Coulombe-Hagerty.
