Physician Quality Report on Clinical Outcomes
Breast Cancer, Prostate Cancer and Thoracic Oncology Quality Reports

Welcome to the first edition of our Breast Cancer, Prostate Cancer and Thoracic Oncology Quality Reports, the Maine Medical Center Cancer Institute’s publications just for you - our valued referring physician. These reports provide a review of our current Breast Cancer Center, Prostate Cancer Program, Thoracic Oncology Center and related services, and highlights clinical outcomes data which can serve as a resource for you.

When you refer a patient to Maine Medical Center’s Cancer Institute, rest assured that we have thousands of positive treatment outcomes as a result of our constant vigilance to fight cancer. We offer more subspecialty-trained physicians who perform more treatments and procedures in oncology services than any other provider in the state - and better skill sets equal better outcomes. We also offer the most nurses with Oncology Nurse Certification in Maine and Northern New England - a higher level of training that is nationally recognized for improving patient outcomes.

We hope you find this information useful in guiding treatment choices for you and your patients. Note: The guides listed below are in .pdf format.
