Exeter Hospital Center for Cancer Care
Working Together With
Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center

Renovation Update:

We are excited to announce that renovations are underway to improve our Hematology and Oncology Center.

Starting June 10, we will begin renovations that may last into 2021. We ask you to please pardon our appearance during construction as we work to create a better Center for you.

During the two weeks of June 10 – June 25, our lobby will undergo renovations.  We apologize for the appearance, but you may still check in as usual right in the lobby.

On July 1, our lab services will move. If you normally have blood drawn before your appointment, you will have blood drawn in our main test station. Our main test station is a few steps away from Hematology and Oncology. Park and enter the building as usual, and the information desk will direct you to the hospital lab.

Again, we appreciate your patience and understanding as we undergo these improvements. Please check this page for renovation updates.

Some patients can be cured with a surgical procedure alone, but most require surgery in combination with either chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or both.
