Cancer Care

Our MRH Cancer Care Center is led by accomplished Oncologist, Hematologist, and groundbreaking cancer researcher, Jens Rueter, MD, who sees patients exclusively at Millinocket Regional Hospital.  Dr. Rueter has vast knowledge and experience ranging from cancer identification, treatment, and care to the identification and treatment of blood diseases.

When not treating patients, Dr. Rueter serves as the Chief Medical Officer at The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) and Medical Director of the Maine Cancer Genomics Initiative, which brings innovative cancer genomic testing and personalized, precision treatment to patients in rural areas throughout Maine.  His work at JAX allows him to bring cutting-edge research findings and treatments to the patients of MRH.

Beth Sypher, FNP, is a family nurse practitioner specializing in Oncology and Hematology.  Beth works primarily at Cancer Care of Maine and alternates with Dr. Rueter to provide even more care and coverage to MRH patients.

Certified Oncology Nurse, Kim Faloon, RN, OCN, is in the clinic daily and collaborates with Dr. Rueter to coordinate patient care and an extensive range of cancer treatments.  Jodi Jandreau, RN, works alongside Kim to provide quality and compassionate care to the patients of MRH Cancer Care.
