Our priority at MaineGeneral’s Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care (HACCC) is the safety of patients and staff.
We are working with the CDC and have developed a plan to make sure you and our workforce remain safe and protected during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Like all MaineGeneral facilities, the HACCC has implemented a screening process that includes asking patients about their recent travel history and if they exhibit symptoms of respiratory infection, such as fever, coughing or shortness of breath.
If you have questions or concerns, please call your care team at
- (207) 621-6100 for Medical Oncology
- (207) 621-9400 for Radiation Oncology
One visitor (age 18 or older) is allowed at this time.
What you need to know before you arrive
We are open and ready to provide your care. If you have a fever, cough or shortness of breath, please call your care team before your appointment. This will allow your team to assess your needs and direct you to the appropriate level of service.
We are screening all patients for risk factors for COVID-19. Employees also are screened daily at a separate entrance.
You will be greeted at the front entrance for preliminary screening. This will help us respond to anyone with potential for COVID-19 infection.
Visitors also must pass screening questions and be free of any respiratory viral symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath.
If preliminary screening questions yield a positive response, the patient and visitor will be masked and escorted to a private area for further assessment and evaluation.
Although we know these restrictions may be hard for you and your loved ones, we trust you understand how necessary these steps are to protect our patients, visitors and staff.
MaineGeneral Medical Center continues to closely monitor this pandemic and follow guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as we are committed to caring for you and your family.
