Cancer Care at The Ottawa Hospital

World-class cancer care right here in town

The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre is the second-largest cancer services provider in Ontario and among the top five in Canada. It is a fully integrated outpatient clinic of The Ottawa Hospital, where 80% of all cancer surgeries in Eastern Ontario are performed. In fact, more than half of all patients at The Ottawa Hospital are being treated for cancer and cancer follow-up.

The Ottawa Hospital is the hub of cancer care in our region, delivering a full range of cancer services, including prevention, screening, diagnosis, surgery and treatment (chemotherapy and radiation), as well as palliative and supportive care. It is also among Canada’s leading sites for clinical trials into the effectiveness of alternative and emerging cancer therapies.

There is no better way to support cancer care in the Ottawa-area than through The Ottawa Hospital Foundation. Ranked as the most efficient hospital foundation in Ontario* and the third most efficient in Canada, The Ottawa Hospital Foundation helps make the biggest impact on care for the more than 20,000 cancer patients treated here every year.
