Partnerships

At the Stronach Regional Cancer Centre (SRCC) at Southlake, we lead joint programs and share oncology experts with world-class partners, such as Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids).

We also work closely with our hosptial partners in care in the Central Regional Cancer Program.

Princess Margaret Cancer Centre

“I had a lot of trouble with transportation. Coming here, twice every three weeks — it’s a blessing.” Josephine, Shared Care model patient with leukemia, SRCC at Southlake

Princess Margaret Cancer Centre logoAs the only cancer centre formally affiliated with Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, all of our radiation oncologists and three of our medical physicists practice at both hospitals. This partnership enables them to bring new research and advances for our patients.

Shared Care for Patients with Leukemia

Together, we also participate in Princess Margaret’s Shared Care model of AML (acute myeloid leukemia). After Central region patients with acute leukemia receive their  consolidation chemotherapy at Princess Margaret, they can save travel time by coming to the SRCC at Southlake for post-chemo, tests, transfusions and treatment closer to home.

SickKids Hospital

“I would like to express my gratitude for all the work you have done. And I feel very blessed to have the clinic so close to home.” – Angela, mother of two-year-old patient

POGO Satellite Clinic

POGO-logo-smallOur nurses, pediatricians and staff work closely with SickKids to provide our young patients with quality treatment closer to home. In this way, we spare their caregivers/families repeated trips to Toronto, while they are treated at SickKids.
