Cancer Center

The John A. DeQuattro Cancer Center, located across Haynes Street from Manchester Memorial Hospital, offers comprehensive cancer services. The center is very welcoming and designed with the comfort of patients and their families first and foremost. The building includes exam and procedure rooms to handle nursing home, bed-bound, wheelchair-bound, and ambulatory patients. It also offers discrete access for ambulances, and adequate office and treatment spaces for the numerous components of the multidisciplinary care team (medical, psychosocial, nutrition, finance, social work, patient education, support services).

Funding opportunities:

DeQuattro Cancer Fund
In memory of the late John A. DeQuattro, DeQuattro Cancer Fund supports the needs of the community of cancer patients by providing personal comfort and neighborly care through financial assistance, family support, education, and counseling to ensure continued quality cancer care close to home. Funds help offset the costs associated with nurse navigators, nutritionists and other support services that will provide a compassionate and skilled environment serving the specialized needs of cancer patients.

Meg Berté Owen Cancer Survivorship Fund
The Meg Berte Owen Cancer Survivorship Fund is used to support a survivorship program with activities that reduce the late effects of cancer treatment while improving and encouraging surveillance for recurring cancers and second malignancies. The survivorship program focuses on addressing the psychosocial needs of patients and their families. Major areas of interest include the assessment and management of anxiety, depression, fatigue, chronic pain, employment, disability, insurability, sexuality, nutrition and fertility. Genetic assessment of patients and their families with a potential for inherited cancer syndromes is encouraged. The fund also assists in supporting community outreach activities directed at the needs of our cancer survivors. To view a video about Meg Owen's story, click here.
