The Chemotherapy treatment area in our new Walker Family Cancer Centre features floor-to-ceiling windows and radiant heat to keep patients warm while undergoing treatment. (Pictured left in an artist’s sketch and right in a finished state).

Our new Walker Family Cancer Centre, currently over 85% complete, will provide a full range of cancer services to patients in the region when it opens in Spring 2013.The dedicated oncology facility will provide radiation treatment for the first time in Niagara, meaning that the majority of cancer patients will be able to receive their chemotherapy and radiation treatment in Niagara, allowing them to make this personal journey as close to home as possible.
