Oncology / Cancer Clinic
CKHA’s Cancer Clinic is a Level 4 satellite outpatient referral centre. We are aligned with the Erie St. Clair Regional Cancer Program (ESC RCP) and the London Regional Cancer Program (LRCP) serving residents of Chatham-Kent. Our aim is to provide timely and safe access to high quality cancer treatment to residents who wish to receive chemotherapy closer to home.
Our dedicated nurses are all members in good standing with the College of Nurses of Ontario and are certified in Biotherapy and Chemotherapy members of the Canadian Vascular Access Association. These talented nurses are de Souza Institute certified, assuring their knowledge and skills meet the provincial high-quality evidence based standards of specialized oncology.
Patients can expect individualized care located on Level 1, Zone A at the very end of the main corridor. We welcome both patients and their families to attend treatment. Our nurses are in communication with the patient’s medical oncologist at either regional cancer centre in order to ensure patient specific cancer treatments are administered in a timely and professional manner within their home community of Chatham-Kent.
