Our hospitals rank among the world’s best for cancer outcomes
Odds are that you know or will know someone dealing with cancer. We can take comfort in knowing that Royal Jubilee and Victoria General hospitals, which are Vancouver Island’s specialty oncology hospitals, offer some of the world’s best treatment. Royal Jubilee hosts the region’s radiotherapy and radio immunotherapy units, as well as one of BC Cancer Agency’s six full-service cancer centres. Victoria General houses the Island’s Breast Health Centre, to screen and diagnose breast cancer. It is also responsible for most child oncology treatments on Vancouver Island.
Our team is involved in every aspect of cancer care, from prevention and diagnosis, to consultation, therapy, and rehabilitation. As a patient, you can feel confident that our integrated approach—involving oncologists, nurses, therapists, pathologists, pharmacists, dieticians, and counsellors—will deliver the best care possible. Our expertise and experience, paired with the latest in cancer care equipment, is why BC ranks near the top globally for cancer outcomes.
Equipment and innovation have brought huge leaps in cancer care
Over the last decade, advanced equipment and innovation have enabled our cancer care team to improve early detection, administer the latest treatment, respond to emergencies, and manage medication side effects. For example, Royal Jubilee Hospital’s Patient Care Centre has three lead-lined rooms for radio immunotherapy—a new chemotherapy targeting specific sites in the body at a molecular level.
