Undergoing cancer care

Treatment for cancer can be intense, sometimes requiring weekly, even daily, appointments. We understand the toll this takes on you and your family. Our Newport center is comfortable, convenient, and spacious. Our chemotherapy area has private sunlit suites with privacy for conversation and space for relaxation. To help you and your family members manage daily details while receiving treatment, our oncology area offers wireless Internet and cable television.

A diagnosis of cancer affects all aspects of your life—physical, emotional, and social. We offer individualized and group support and guidance for patients and families. Onsite programs help patients and families manage common side effects of treatment such as nausea or fatigue, while also helping people cope with the impact that hair loss or surgery may have on one's body image and self-confidence.

Northern New England's only comprehensive cancer care

Norris Cotton Cancer Center is one of only 40 cancer centers in the nation to have earned the Comprehensive Cancer Center designation from the National Cancer Institute. This federal designation recognizes our achievements in cancer treatment, research, education, and prevention. Our focus on developing and studying new cancer treatments expands our knowledge and access to the latest developments in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
