When you or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, finding the right care is the most important next step. At Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Cheshire Medical Center, we provide diagnosis and treatment in a compassionate, supportive environment, backed by a world-class team of specialists and researchers.
Our Keene location
Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC) is one of the nation’s premier facilities for cancer treatment and research. Our Keene location at Cheshire Medical Center’s Kingsbury Pavilion offers the same positive environment for treatment, cure, and recovery for patients with cancer. Each patient is seen as an individual, which means our specialists develop a specific treatment plan and then work directly with the patient, their family, and the referring physician to implement care.
