Elliot Hospital (a founding member of SolutionHealth) was a pioneer in oncology when it opened the first cancer center in New Hampshire in 1966. Through the years, the cancer center at Elliot Hospital has been a leader in cancer care through state-of-the-art technology, skilled health care providers, and an accessible, aesthetically pleasing, comforting environment.
On August 3, a brand-new building dedicated to cancer care will open at The Elliot. Made possible by more than $12.3M in donations to the Hope is Here campaign, the newly named Solinsky Center for Cancer Care builds on The Elliot’s long history of providing patient-focused cancer care and looks to the future. Here, patients will find the full spectrum of cancer care services, including both radiation oncology and medical oncology, all in one convenient location thanks to the generosity of the Manchester community. It’s where world-class treatment options meet a modern, relaxing, easy to navigate space that’s designed with the patient in mind.
At a special event hosted by the Mary & John Elliot Foundation, donors were given small group tours to accommodate social distancing best practices and played witness to the official ribbon cutting. To see photos from the event, visit The Elliot’s Facebook page.
