The ability for our patients to receive treatments here, in our community, means the world to them. It means getting to go home to their own beds and familiar surroundings after every treatment. It means having the ones they love and care for around them for support. It means not having the burden of travel to Victoria when they feel unwell.” – Jenny Gallagher, RN, Cancer Care Clinic at the Comox Valley Hospital.
Currently, the Comox Valley Hospital is providing cancer care to over 250 patients through several therapy options including Oral or IV, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, and hormonal therapy . That’s over 250 loved ones who are able to be treated close to home.
