Our Radiation Oncology Program
Investment In Technology
At MaineGeneral, you have access to the latest technology available. We are the leader in cancer care in the Kennebec Valley and beyond and our state-of-the-art technology benefits patients every day.
Our radiation oncology department has:
- Two new Varian True Beam Linac treatment machines
- An onsite CT Simulator for treatment planning
- HDR – specific targeted radiation treatment for gynecologic (GYN) cancers
- Stereotactic Ablated Radiotherapy (SABR) which uses 3-D imaging to target high doses of radiation to the affected area with minimal impact on the surrounding healthy tissues.
You deserve the highest-quality cancer services. In 2010, the HACCC became one of the first 16 cancer practices in the United States — and the first in Maine — recognized by the American Society of Clinical Oncology's Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) certification program. The HACCC was recertified in 2019.
At MaineGeneral, we believe you should have accurate information to help you choose a health care provider or medical practice based on the quality of care you can expect to receive.

Maine Cancer Genomics Initiative and Jackson Lab
The HACCC is home to the Maine Cancer Genomics Initiative (MCGI) which is supported by the Harold Alfond Foundation. The MCGI is an alliance of Maine oncology providers, led by researchers at the Jackson Laboratory (JAX), who are focused on improving outcomes for cancer patients across Maine. Test results are discussed monthly at statewide genomic tumor boars.
More than 500 HACCC patients have been helped through this partnership, through clinical trials, access to targeted therapies and novel technology.
