Exceptional cancer care is possible because of you

You don’t have to go far for top quality cancer care in Durham Region. Lakeridge Health’s R.S. McLaughlin Durham Regional Cancer Centre is located in the heart of Oshawa and provides comprehensive cancer care services, including prevention and screening, diagnosis, treatment, palliative care, and survivorship with state-of-the-art equipment.

Having innovative technology on hand gives the expert medical staff and physicians the right tools to deliver exceptional patient care. With more than 100,000 families relying on our cancer centre each year, private support from donors like you is more important than ever.

Earlier this year, Lakeridge Health announced the arrival of a new, technologically-advanced robot that prepares injectable cancer treatments. The new robot is part of a transformation of cancer pharmacy services available at the cancer centre. Lakeridge Health is now home to one of only five Robotic Intravenous Automation (RIVA) systems in Canada. The new RIVA robot is part of a major renewal of the cancer centre’s pharmacy, which includes an upgraded retail pharmacy space, new consultation kiosks and other enhancements to ensure the safest, and most sterile, environment is available to prepare chemotherapy treatments for patients.

Twelve years ago, the Lakeridge Health Foundation saw overwhelming support from the Durham Region community and beyond to help build the cancer centre. Thanks to donor support, the foundation hopes to bring new technology, like RIVA, to departments throughout Lakeridge Health that support cancer care.

With one in two Canadians developing cancer every year, having exceptional cancer care available close to home is vital for our community.
