The new cancer centre at the Royal Inland Hospital will bring life-saving cancer care closer to home for patients and families.
BC Cancer (Provincial Health Services Authority), in partnership with Interior Health, is building a new cancer centre at the Royal Inland Hospital to bring cancer care closer to home for patients and families facing cancer.
Business planning for the new cancer centre is now underway to determine the project scope, schedule and budget. The new centre is expected to provide space for:
- Patient arrival and check-in
- Radiation treatment, including shielded treatment rooms, known as bunkers
- High-energy radiation treatment linear accelerators (LINACS)
- Radiation therapy planning
- CT simulator
- MRI scanner
- An outpatient oncology ambulatory care unit, including exam rooms and consulting rooms
- Staff support, including offices and workstations
- A parkade
- Additional diagnostic and treatment equipment and services may be identified as a requirement for the new cancer-care centre during the business planning phase
In addition to building a new cancer centre, there will also be upgrades to the community oncology clinic. Hospital upgrades will include the modernization and increase in the number of cancer treatment spaces and exam rooms at Royal Inland Hospital. As well, renovation and expansion of the existing pharmacy will improve functionality, along with the installation of improved dispensing and automated dispensing replenishing area and storage.
The cancer centre is a part of the Province's 10-year B.C. cancer action plan, which outlines immediate steps to prevent, detect and treat cancers, delivering improved care for people facing cancer now while preparing for the growing needs of the future.
The new cancer centre will be located at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops.
