The Cancer Care Center at Pen Bay Medical Center provides cancer treatment and support, detection and diagnosis, and educational and counseling services. The center is staffed by an on-site, board- certified oncologist, a social worker and nurses with a special interest in caring for patients with cancer, several of whom have certification in oncology nursing.
