Cancer Care: A Program of Eastern Health

Cancer Care, a program of Eastern Health, operates at the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Centre in St. John's and also operates regional cancer centres across the province located in Gander, Grand Falls-Windsor and Corner Brook. The delivery of chemotherapy services is also supported in a number of hospitals throughout the province, including Labrador City, St. Anthony and Happy Valley-Goose Bay in the Labrador-Grenfell Health region.

The Cancer Care program is committed to ensuring patients receive the highest standard of care as close to their home as possible. Oncologists working with the Cancer Care Program hold clinics in the regional centres and also use videoconferencing for patient appointments. This helps to reduce the distance patients have to travel for follow-up appointments.


Eastern Health Recruiting Advisors for the Cancer Care Program's Patient and Family Advisory Council

Eastern Health is seeking six to eight volunteers across Newfoundland and Labrador to act as patient and family advisors on the Cancer Care Program’s Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC). Patient and family advisors will be given the opportunity to share their perspectives on educational resources, initiatives, programs and services to help improve the patient, family member and caregiver experience during the cancer journey.
