Be part of our Annual Giving Program to support cancer care at Solinsky Center for Cancer Care at The Elliot.

We are grateful to the kind donors of our Hope is Here Campaign, which supported the opening of The Solinsky Center for Cancer Care at The Elliot, which opened in August 2020.

A special thank you for the transformational gift from Kenneth and Grace Solinsky, which named the new cancer program as The Solinsky Center for Cancer Care at The Elliot. Their dedication to ensuring the highest quality and most comprehensive cancer care be available here in southern New Hampshire is truly exceptional.

Under the outstanding leadership of Ellie Cochran and Charlie Goodwin, Co-Chairs of the Hope is Here Campaign Committee, we moved through the spring and summer, being continually humbled and grateful to the many individuals, families, foundations and corporate partners who stepped forward to bring hope to all those facing cancer in our community. We are so moved that so many of these gifts are made in memory and honor of their loved ones, colleagues, and friends who have faced cancer, such as Robert Singer and his family as they remember his son Jordan with their leadership gift or Mark Aquilino and his family who celebrated his mother with their donation. The outstanding clinical care being provided at the new Solinsky Center for Cancer Care is a legacy for all those who helped to raise more than $12.6M to the Campaign and helping to open the doors to this magnificent center.

You can make a leadership of support cancer care at The Elliot, please join us by making a gift today.

Cancer is a leading healthcare concern for New Hampshire. By 2030, there is expected to be a 36% increase in demand for cancer services. The Solinsky Center for Cancer Care at The Elliot, part of the SolutionHealth Cancer Institute, is ready to meet those needs with a new, patient-focused center.

In both Manchester, at Elliot Hospital, and Nashua, at Southern New Hampshire Health, there is a long history of delivering comprehensive, patient-centered cancer care. In December of 2020, SolutionHealth, the parent company of Elliot Health System and Southern New Hampshire, announced its two campuses will work as one service line across the region, collectively to be known as the SolutionHealth Cancer Institute, and partner with Mass General Hospital to enhance services.

At the Solinsky Center for Cancer Care at The Elliot and the cancer center at Southern New Hampshire Health, patients will find expert local care led by our talented clinicians. When a second opinion is needed, or more advanced care is needed, SolutionHealth has partnered with Mass General Cancer Center to ensure every patient gets the right care, in the right place, at the right time.

The SolutionHealth Cancer Institute, in collaboration with Mass General Cancer Center, is designed to improve the patient experience while providing the very best care possible. Among the areas of focus is expanded access to phase 1 clinical trials, enhanced genetic and molecular testing, advanced clinical care for advanced and rare cancers, and multi-disciplinary clinical management that will extend through all phases of a patient’s treatment journey. All available here, close to home.

The Solinsky Center for Cancer Care at The Elliot is unlike nearly any other facility in southern New Hampshire. This dynamic Cancer Center features:

  • Comprehensive Cancer Services of hematology, radiation oncology, medical oncology, chemotherapy, and support services
  • An infusion and immune therapy center with spacious treatment rooms and amenities for patients and their families
  • State-of-the-art technology including two linear accelerators that provide precision, high dose treatments while minimizing radiation exposure, and reducing complications and recovery times.
  • An expanded Thoracic Oncology Surgery Program; the only in the immediate region
  • Multidisciplinary conferences gathering a patient’s entire care team—including the patient’s primary care provider, oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, surgeons, and social workers—to discuss treatment plans and ensure close collaboration. A process that could otherwise take weeks is quickly facilitated
  • An all-new Patient and Family Nurse Navigator Program to coordinate treatment and serve as the main contact for questions and concerns
  • Dedicated oncology social workers
  • A registered dietitian will offer nutrition assessments and develop individualized therapeutic diets
  • Physical therapy, occupational therapy and other services to help patients manage symptoms related to their cancer and treatment
  • A survivorship program to develop individual plans guiding cancer patients in their transition from active treatment to life as a cancer survivor
  • Palliative Care Services to support quality-of-life decisions and pain management
  • Free support groups and programs including workshops on nutrition, yoga, reiki and other programs

Our comprehensive Breast Care Center will remain at The Elliot at Rivers Edge providing 3D mammography and 3-D breast biopsies by dedicated breast radiologists, and surgery by dedicated breast surgeons and plastic/reconstruction surgeons.
