Wednesday, October 4, 2017
BROCKTON, MA — Signature Healthcare, in affiliation with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, is treating cancer patients close to home with the latest technology, personnel and resources coordinated under one roof.
This new 37,000 sqft cancer center is important to the community for several reasons. We have the only TrueBeam Linear Accelerator in our service area. A Linear Accelerator is most commonly used for external beam radiation treatments for patients with cancer. The next closest hospital with this equipment is Dana Farber in Boston. We are “bringing Boston to Brockton” with top oncology physicians who are affiliated with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Faculty. All our cancer services are under one new roof, including Radiation Oncology, Medical Oncology and Hematology, Chemotherapy, National Clinical Trials, Patient Navigation, and social support services like nutrition and financial counseling, allowing for seamless, quality care collaboration.
“Our affiliation with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical Faculty Physicians insures our patients will receive the very best in cancer care, close to home. We are bringing Boston to Brockton through the latest technologies, treatments, and most of all, a highly educated and caring staff. Patients and visitors can expect the highest level of care without having to travel into Boston. Our continued partnership brings quality, safe care to the community and we look forward to many years of growth and excellence with this affiliation,” said Kim Hollon, President & CEO of Signature Healthcare.
During an Open House on October 4, Signature Healthcare revealed the name of the center. Thanks to the generosity of WB Mason, the center will be named the John, Steven and Caryll Greene Cancer Center after WB Mason’s Executive Vice President, Chairman and his wife, respectively. WB Mason is the largest privately held office products dealer in the United States and is headquartered in Brockton, Massachusetts. Founded in 1898 (2 years after the founding of Brockton Hospital) WB Mason has been family owned since that time and now has over 60 distribution centers across the United States.
