On October 12, 2017, Trillium Health Partners and Trillium Health Partners Foundation celebrated the official opening of the new Michele S. Darling Women's Imaging and Assessment Centre at Trillium Health Partners' Credit Valley Hospital.

The new Michèle S. Darling Women’s Imaging and Assessment Centre integrates diagnostic imaging services with the Breast Cancer Diagnostic Program, providing a coordinated, patient-centred approach to care where patients can receive breast diagnostic tests, receive consultation and follow up and see their surgeon all in one place. The new centre offers patients faster access to diagnosis, meaning breast cancer can be discovered at the earliest possible stage with a better chance of successful treatment, less chance of spread and more treatment options available to patients. 
 
The new centre includes two surgical consult rooms, a patient education/consult room, a nurse navigator room, two mammography rooms, one ultrasound room and a breast biopsy room with specialized equipment to perform minimally invasive breast biopsies.

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.”
