About the Ottawa Hospital Cancer Program

The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Program is a comprehensive cancer program serving the population from Deep River to Hawkesbury and down to Cornwall. The Program’s staff and physicians provide leadership in a network of stakeholders, health care professionals and organizations across the region. The purpose of this regional program is to ensure care is delivered according to province wide quality cancer standards and to provide care close to home when possible e.g. cancer screening, surgery, chemotherapy, follow up care and end of life care.

As the “hub” of this Regional Cancer Program the Ottawa Hospital (TOH) operates a cancer centre with two sites - one located on the General Campus of TOH and the Irving Greenberg Family Cancer Centre located on the grounds of the Queensway Carleton Hospital. The centre is a treatment and research facility that bring together doctors, nurses, researchers and other healthcare professionals – all committed to improving care, finding new treatments and enhancing the quality of life of cancer patients.
