New Cape Breton Cancer Centre

The Cape Breton Cancer Centre opened in 1998 and currently serves more than double the patients for which it was built.

The new, larger centre will provide a more comfortable, supportive centre focused on patients and their families. Technology and additional supports under one roof will enhance the quality of care for patients, closer to home, and reduce the number of visits over the course of treatment.

Emergency Department

Since the Cape Breton Regional Hospital opened in 1995, the emergency department has been renovated five times to help accommodate more patients and services.

The new emergency department will be larger with more exam and patient rooms. Emergency patients will be able to access services such as CT scanner, x-rays and ultrasound without leaving the department.
