The Walker Family Cancer Centre is built on more than a quarter century of quality care and treatment provided to cancer patients in the Niagara Region by our dedicated team.
The new facility completed in 2013 features:

Niagara Health also provides satellite clinics at the Greater Niagara General and Welland sites. Consultation, follow-up and supportive care is provided to outpatients and inpatients promoting care as close to home as possible.
Patient and Family Advisory Councils from local to regional to provincial levels provide us with the ability to work together with our patients and families to provide the best patient experience possible.
Patient-centred care is provided by a team of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, specialized nurses, social workers, dietitians, pharmacists and others.
