PRECEIVE HIGH-TECH CARE, CLOSE TO HOME

York Hospital provides the same treatments and protocols you would receive anywhere else – including larger academic institutions and tertiary care centers). Here, we are able to give you personalized attention and care and get your treatment programs started quickly – and with your family at your side. York Hospital offers treatment in three centers conveniently located in York Village, Wells and Kittery. Each site offers personalized care, private treatment rooms, and special amenities. Services are based around patient comfort, and families are always welcome. Our philosophy is relationship development. We develop relationships with every patient and their family – from the front desk, to your nurse, your support staff and your physician. We believe these relationships help foster health and healing in your cancer journey.

HEALING THE WHOLE YOU IN A FRIENDLY, COMFORTABLE ENVIRONMENT.

Our environment centers on our patients and their families – where friends and relatives are invited to be a part of the treatment process whenever patients desire. We offer comfortable, private treatment rooms for each and every patient – each with cozy recliners, televisions, and free wi-fi. We also offer transportation to and from all of our locations for patients residing in the communities we serve.
