Take a virutal tour of our Fairhaven cancer center

Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care at Fairhaven, opening summer 2011

Southcoast is about to open its new flagship Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care in Fairhaven that will provide 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 will ensure 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.

Take a quick video tour of our new Fairhaven site of the Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care with some of the members of our team.
