Kennebunk, ME – AlliedCook Construction participated in the recent groundbreaking ceremony for a new state-of-the-art oncology patient-centered medical home for New England Cancer Specialists.

The 15,000sf medical home will bring world-class treatment to York County with its leading-edge technology and advanced architectural design.

Features of the one-story, wood-framed building include a spacious and comfortable treatment room employing the latest technology for administering chemotherapy, exam rooms, laboratory, a state-of-the-art pharmacy and dispensing program, and advanced teleconferencing and collaboration capabilities, allowing New England Cancer Specialists to provide a broad spectrum of services including genetic counseling, research, and financial advocacy.

The new facility is designed with the patient in mind as a place for their medical home. The organization is such that the patient can access a variety of patient care options directly with the utmost ease and limited overlap with other patient treatment spaces, reinforcing New England Cancer Specialists’ vision of providing the highest quality of compassionate care though the architecture as well as staff expertise.

The new facility was designed by Whipple | Callender Architects and developed by Bateman Partners, LLC. AlliedCook is serving as the Construction Manager.

Construction is expected to be completed late spring of 2015.
