Cancer-987237252-(2).jpgNorthern Light Mercy Cancer Care understands that cancer is personal. That’s why patients are at the core of our individualized approach, with a clinical team that is responsive and accountable to your preferences, needs, and values, ensuring that patients and families are at the center of everything we do. Mercy’s comprehensive program gives you the attention you expect, with high quality, personalized, and coordinated care. Patients have access to a full spectrum of medical, psychosocial, and supportive care close to home.

To provide the very best cancer care in Maine, Northern Light Cancer Care at Mercy Hospital has teamed with New England Cancer Specialists (NECS) — the region’s largest medical oncology group, with nearly half of Maine’s board-certified medical oncologists.

Mercy’s cancer care program offers comprehensive care for most adult cancers, including solid tumors and hematologic malignancies, as well as benign blood disorders. Our commitment to excellence in cancer care has been recognized by continuous accreditation from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.

We are a community of dedicated departments and individuals who come together to form a multi-disciplinary team of caregivers, working together to provide our patients coordinated and compassionate care.
