Patrick Dempsey Opens Maine Cancer Facility

That McDreamy! He's too good.

Patrick Dempsey announced plans to open a new cancer ward at the Central Maine Medical Center. The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing is inspired by the actor's mother, Amanda Dempsey, who fought ovarian cancer -- and beat it.

"For a family to get a cancer diagnosis is devastating, and all the information out there can be overwhelming," Patrick told the media today. "So I talked to my sister about a place where people could go for all this type of information and help. Knowledge is power."

His sister, Mary, works at the hospital, and will run the center, which is scheduled to open on March 31. 

Celebs doing good -- love it.
