Help us Open the Doors to the NEW Elliot Regional Cancer Center – Solinsky Center for Cancer Care, August, 2020.

Elliot Regional Cancer Center

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 Elliot Regional Cancer Center will be ready to meet those needs with a new, patient-focused center. Cancer patients typically require surgery, radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy, and over half of our cancer patients need at least two of these modalities during the course of their treatment. Currently, these services are not housed under a single roof. As a result, our patients need to travel to multiple locations (sometimes on the same day) to receive care, adding to an already stressful situation.

Elliot Health System has always been known for its high quality and compassionate cancer program staffed with distinction by skilled surgical, oncology, radiation therapy and nursing teams, it was constructed in a vastly different healthcare era. Technology, computerization, design, layout, and equipment have all undergone multiple dramatic changes between then and now with enormous positive impact on patient safety, patient comfort, and physician and staff efficiency.

Our new Regional Cancer Center, unlike nearly any other facility in southern New Hampshire, will co-locate nearly ALL of the following services in a single location, with adjacent, expanded parking for easy access. This dynamic Cancer Center will feature:

  • 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. Our mammography services in Londonderry and Webster Street will continue to serve patients.

“A cancer diagnosis can affect any individual in our community at any time. We need to be able to provide the most up to date care locally for our family members and neighbors when that critical need arises.”
Brian Knab, MD, Medical Director, Elliot Regional Cancer Center
