NYGH has one of the largest cancer care programs in the GTA and we are proud to have the lowest wait times in Ontario for cancer surgery. We understand that patients need cancer care options close to home, but our community is growing and aging at an unprecedented rate. Incidences of cancer are on the rise, which is why we must act now to keep pace with our expanding community – and we can’t do it alone.
“In just five short years, our Cancer Care volumes have jumped by 60 percent. NYGH hosts over 22,500 patient visits each year – and that number is growing.”
With your help, we will transform the clinical space that hosts our Cancer Care Program into a centralized hub for cancer care – and one that can accommodate our growing volumes. The new space will be easier for patients to navigate and will further support NYGH’s culture of teamwork and multidisciplinary care – an approach that is largely held by the medical community as the highest standard of care.
The reconfigured clinic will bring oncology, hematology and pharmacy together in one space, giving patients access to everything they need in one location and truly putting them at the centre of care. Here, they will access chemotherapy, pain and system management, mental health support and nutritional guidance all in one location.
Your generosity will help us raise the $3.5M needed to transform the way we deliver cancer care to patients in our community – now and in the future.
