The Gale and Graham Wright Prostate Centre at North York General Hospital (NYGH) offers an environment that supports early access to prostate cancer care, including diagnosis, support and education, and a coordinated approach to treatment planning — all in one spot. We focus on providing expert, compassionate and leading-edge care for men with suspected prostate cancer.
Opened in 2007, the Gale and Graham Wright Prostate Centre is the first centre of its kind within a community hospital.
In collaboration with the Odette Cancer Centre at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, the Gale and Graham Wright Prostate Centre provides an interdisciplinary approach to prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment based on the latest surgical, radiation and chemotherapy treatments, as well as clinical trials.
The centre enhances knowledge of prostate cancer, including prostate cancer signs and symptoms, types of prostate cancer and treatment options.
