Cancer Care Center of York County changes name
SANFORD — The Cancer Care Center of York County (CCCYC) is changing its name to the MaineHealth Cancer Care Center York County. The new name, effective June 1, reflects its partnership in the MaineHealth Cancer Care Network, a coordinated system of care that brings the best evidenced-based cancer treatments as close to home as possible to communities across Maine and the Mt. Washington Valley in New Hampshire.
“While the Cancer Care Center’s name has changed, its commitment to delivering the best Cancer Care in York County has not,” said Scot Remick, MD, FACP, chief of Oncology for the MaineHealth Cancer Care Network and Maine Medical Center Cancer Institute. “It’s important for cancer patients to receive the right care, at the right time as close to home as possible. Maine Medical Center will continue to provide York County’s only radiation oncology services at the Center as well as IV therapy. Southern Maine Health Care will also continue to provide medical oncology and hematology services in Sanford.”
The Cancer Care Center of York County, which opened in 2006 at 27 Industrial Ave. in Sanford, was formed in collaboration with Maine Medical Center, Southern Maine Medical Center (SMMC) and Goodall Hospital with a mission to provide the best cancer treatment available in York County from one location. In 2014 SMMC and Goodall Hospital merged to become Southern Maine Health Care.

Sen. Woodsome posts perfect voting record
AUGUSTA — Sen. David Woodsome, R-York, posted a perfect voting record in the Maine Senate during the 128th Legislature. He also had a 100 percent voting attendance record in the 127th Legislature, meaning he has never missed a vote for his entire time as a state senator.
The Senate had 657 roll call votes during the First and Second Regular Sessions of the 128th Legislature and Woodsome was present for all of them.
“The people of my district elected me to represent them,” Woodsome said. “We had many important pieces of legislation to consider over the past two years, and I wanted to make sure I recorded my vote on every one of them.
“It’s my hope that the legislature will reconvene in the near future to consider and vote on all bills left unresolved when the legislature adjourned this past April.”
Woodsome represents Senate District 33, which includes the communities of Cornish, Limerick, Newfield, Parsonsfield, Sanford, Shapleigh and Waterboro. He is the chair of the Legislature’s Energy, Utilities, and Technology Committee and also serves on the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee.
The voting totals for the Second Regular Session of the 128th Legislature were compiled by the Office of the Secretary of the Senate.
