For over 20 years, Blue Hill Memorial Hospital has offered patients the expertise and convenience of receiving oncology services while remaining close to home. We recently expanded our services to include infusion treatments for osteoporosis, Lyme disease, and other needs.
Philip Brooks, MD, an oncologist from Cancer Care of Maine (CCOM) oversees chemotherapy treatments, oncology procedures, education and follow-up care at Blue Hill Memorial Hospital. The oncologist works closely with you, your family, your physician, and Hancock County HomeCare to provide the services you and your family may need during your care.
Our goal is to ensure a high degree of comfort between you and your interdisciplinary support team, which includes highly qualified staff from our laboratory, pharmacy, diagnostic imaging, rehabilitation, and case management departments . We offer our patients both the personal attention of a small hospital with the extensive resources of Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems. Our nursing staff has received special training to administer chemotherapy.
Especially for Seasonal Residents
Staff in our oncology and infusion services department work with many seasonal residents and their providers to allow them to continue their chemotherapy close to their summer homes.
Oncology and Infusion Services patients may benefit from other services available at Blue Hill Memorial Hospital to help them manage the side effects of chemotherapy and other forms of cancer treatment, and to monitor the progress of the disease. Relevant services include:
- Nutritional counseling
- Emergency Department
- Diagnostic Imaging
- Rehabilitation Services, including lymphedema, occupational, and physical therapy which can be helpful after some cancer surgeries or a lengthy period of reduced activity.
- Skilled Nursing and Palliative Care, should hospitalization be required.
