Our hospital is pleased to offer chemotherapy services through a satellite clinic affiliated with the Regional Cancer program in Kingston. The goal of partnering with the Cancer Center of Southeastern Ontario was to provide chemotherapy services closer to home for patients in our area.
The self-contained satellite chemotherapy clinic opened in 2012. Patients receive initial diagnosis and treatment in Kingston. If the patient meets certain criteria and they wish to receive their chemotherapy or supportive therapies in Napanee, an appointment can be booked by Kingston Health Sciences Centre (KHSC). Throughout the patient’s treatment, the care team at LACGH and KHSC are in regular contact.
This clinic is a true partnership between LACGH and KHSC and we are happy to be able to meet the needs of our local community. We are thankful for the ongoing support of the community for the Chemotherapy Service.
