Mary Dow Center for Cancer Care Ribbon Cutting

 

Community members visited Maine Coast Memorial Hospital on Sunday afternoon to tour the new Mary Dow Center for Cancer Care recently constructed adjacent to the front entrance of the hospital.  The public was welcomed with a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by guided tours of the 3.4 million dollar project.

Initially founded in 1997, the Mary Dow Center has grown from its original location with 1,500 square feet, to its new home of 6,500 square feet. This new center will provide a brighter and more comfortable space for patients to receive their care, while still being treated by the same caring and dedicated staff.

Pictured cutting the ribbon of the new Mary Dow Center for Cancer Care are l-r:  Geof Fraser, Bob Merrill, Dr. Sheena Whittaker, Dr. Philip Brooks, Rebecca Sargent, Gary Fortier, Jeff Dow, Jayne Wixon, RN, John Blanchard, Chuck Pollock, Rep. Rich Malaby, CEO Charlie Therrien, Rep. Louis Luchini.
