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.

Other Benefits of the Cape Breton Cancer Centre include:
