The Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario is a component of the Integrated Regional Cancer Program
at the Kingston General Hospital. The program is responsible for out-patient and in-patient cancer
care at the hospital and provides cancer services to patients in Southeastern Ontario. Services
provided include cancer genetics (familial oncology) diagnosis, treatment, support, palliative care,
education and research in cancer.
The Cancer Centre is an outpatient facility. We see patients from all over Southeastern Ontario.
Most patients come to the Centre for chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy treatments. These treatments
are decided upon with your input and consent. Your family doctor, the referring Doctor and other medical
advisors will be involved in your treatment and follow-up. If you have any questions about this process,
please let us know.
The Cancer Centre is a medical and community leader in cancer care. As such, it collaborates with many
organizations in your community that provide treatment and assistance to cancer patients. Our professional
staff provides you with the best possible care closest to your home, family and friends.
The Cancer Centre is a training facility and provides a supportive learning environment for residents
(Doctors receiving specialized training in radiation and medical oncology), student Radiation Therapists,
Medical Physicists, Social Workers, Dietitians and Nurses.
Our staff recognizes that you will want to have information about your cancer, diagnosis, treatment and
prognosis. Our staff can direct you to resources that may be of assistance through your diagnosis and
treatment. If you have questions, at any time through your treatment and follow-up, please do not hesitate
to ask a member of the staff.
