Cancer Care Closer to Home

The Chemotherapy Unit at the Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance is an essential part of cancer care for patients in Perth and Huron Counties. The unit provides top-notch care closer to home, thereby:

  • Eliminating the anxiety of receiving treatment in an unfamiliar setting
  • Reducing the time and expense of travel
  • Providing the chance to develop close relationships and a support system with other local residents

As a partner hospital of the South West Regional Cancer Program, patients are initially assessed in London and may be referred back to Stratford General Hospital for cancer treatment.

What is Chemotherapy?

Chemotherapy (also called systemic therapy) is a method of treating cancer by using drugs or medicines. Often a combination of chemotherapy drugs are used, but it depends on the individual and their specific needs. Chemotherapy drugs slow or stop the cancer cells from growing, multiplying or spreading (metastasizing) to other parts of the body.

Additional services offered at the Chemotherapy Unit include: Supportive Care (follow-up appointments), and Coordination of care for the patient.

Staffing for the Unit includes Registered Nurses trained in Chemotherapy, an on site Internist and Pharmacist/Pharmacy Technician along with administrative support.
