COMMUNITY IMPACT

JAMES AND EDNA CLAYDON RADIATION TREATMENT CLINIC

In 2012, QEII supporters helped establish one of North America’s best and most innovative radiation treatment clinics, here, at the QEII. The James and Edna Claydon Radiation Treatment Clinic houses linear accelerators, targeting tumours with arc beam radiation. Patients receive more precise therapy than ever before, with better protection of healthy tissue.

MEDICAL DAY UNIT ADVANCEMENTS

Over the years, generous supporters like you have ensured the Medical Day Unit keeps up with the growing demand for cancer care in Atlantic Canada by helping expand the unit and funding additional treatment rooms so more patients receive timely care. These compassionate donors also continue to support life-saving equipment such as chemotherapy chairs and pumps.

ATLANTIC CLINICAL CANCER RESEARCH UNIT

The Atlantic Clinical Cancer Research Unit (ACCRU) would not be able to operate at its current level of capacity without people like you. Your kindness ensures a team of physicians, nurses and administrators continue to put clinical trials in action, meaning that our loved ones are connected with world-leading treatments that aren’t yet part of standard care.

MEDICAL PHYSICS PROGRAM

The best technology available today advances patient care and is a major factor in attracting the best minds in medicine. The donor-funded linear accelerators at the QEII allowed for the creation of a medical physics program, attracting the best and brightest to learn and grow at the QEII. The medical physics program is one of 12 of its kind in the world. Medical physicists at the QEII are responsible for the accuracy of radiation doses, determining the best pathway to access tumors through targeted radiation therapy.


Virtual tour

In 2012, the QEII Foundation celebrated the opening of The James and Edna Claydon Radiation Treatment Clinic thanks to the original Cancer Never Waits fundraising campaign, which raised over $4-million. Aimed at reducing wait times and improving treatment options, the over $20-million expansion to the cancer centre – jointly funded by government and QEII Foundation donors – transformed the care journey for patients receiving radiation therapy at the QEII.

This transformation included establishing one of North America’s best and most innovative radiation treatment clinics, here, at the QEII and funding three new linear accelerators. Targeting tumours with arcs of radiation beams like never before, the addition of three new linear accelerators significantly reduces treatment times for patients.
