The new cancer centre at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital will bring life-saving cancer care closer to home for patients and families.
BC Cancer (Provincial Health Services Authority) in partnership with Island Health, is building a new cancer centre at the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital to bring cancer care closer to home for patients and families facing cancer.
The new cancer centre is expected to offer:
- Radiation therapy
- An outpatient oncology ambulatory care unit
- A net new PET/CT machine
- A new radiation-treatment space with shielded treatment rooms for high-energy radiation-treatment linear accelerators, which deliver high-energy X-rays or electrons to the region of a patient's tumour
In addition to constructing a new cancer centre, there will also be hospital upgrades, including the renovation and expansion of the existing community oncology clinic at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. This will increase the number of treatment spaces and exam rooms, and replace the current cancer outpatient pharmacy.
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 Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.
