About the Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care at Fairhaven
Construction of $60M cancer center under way in Fairhaven
The new Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care in Fairhaven is now open, providing convenient access to advanced cancer services to residents in the eastern part of the South Coast region.
The new Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care in Fairhaven ensures coordinated, high-quality, streamlined care for cancer patients and their families.
It brings together state-of-the-art radiation therapy and medical oncology, such as chemotherapy, in a beautiful and peaceful setting conveniently located off Interstate 195 in Fairhaven.
The new outpatient center also has the very latest advanced technology — from radiation therapy to diagnostic testing and imaging — to meet the growing needs of the region's cancer patients.
"The Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care puts patients squarely at the center, providing access to a full range of medical and radiation oncology services — without having to travel," said Keith A. Hovan, President & CEO of Southcoast Hospitals Group. "The new center will also address the fragmentation of oncology services currently offered in the region; and have outstanding physicians, nurses and staff who are solely dedicated to giving our patients the best, most compassionate care — right here, close to home."
The Fairhaven center is the flagship outpatient center for Southcoast Hospitals' cancer services program, which currently includes radiation therapy and medical oncology in Fall River and medical oncology in North Dartmouth. The North Dartmouth center will relocate to Fairhaven this summer.
In July 2009, Southcoast Hospitals opened its Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care in Fall River in the Mitchell Building at Charlton Memorial Hospital. The Fall River center offers a full range of oncology services, including advanced radiation therapy, medical oncology at Charlton's Jarabek Center, support services and free valet parking. The Fall River location will serve as the satellite location to the Fairhaven center.
We have an ambitious goal — and an ambitious schedule. And we can only do it with your support.
The total project cost is $60 million for the Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care, with its new flagship outpatient center in Fairhaven and the necessary expansions to the already opened center in Fall River.
This project, set to complete in early 2011, will be funded by philanthropy along with existing endowment and a bond.
