Focus on Chemotherapy
With more than 3,000 people visiting them each month, our chemotherapy clinics are very busy places.


Our team of medical oncologists, pharmacists and oncology nurses work closely together to ensure the safe administration of chemotherapy at five of our hospitals in the Central East Regional Cancer Program.


We offer chemotherapy (also called systemic therapy) to patients through intravenous (IV) in treatments that usually last for a few hours at a time in a clinic-like setting. For some forms of cancer, oral chemotherapy is also available in a pill form that can be taken at home.
