Ietobicoke general hospitaln partnership with the Mississauga Halton Central West (MHCW) Regional Cancer Program and Trillium Health Partners, William Osler Health System has recently expanded its ambulatory services at Etobicoke General Hospital by offering patients weekly half-day clinics for radiation consultation and follow-up appointments. The radiation consultation clinics will see patients with a diagnosis of breast, genitourinary (GU), and palliative malignancies.

Currently, the MHCW Regional Cancer Program also provides radiation consultation clinics at William Osler Health System’s Brampton Civic Hospital, Halton Healthcare’s Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, and Trillium Health Partners’ Carlo Fidani Regional Cancer Centre and Queensway Health Centre.

“The addition of the new radiation consultation clinics at Etobicoke General Hospital provides access to care that is closer to home for our patients in Central West,” says Dr. Anthony Brade, Regional Radiation Lead, Mississauga Halton Central West Regional Cancer Program. “By standardizing the model of care across these radiation consult clinics, patients are able to receive the same level of care no matter their location in our two LHINs.”
