The expanded chemotherapy suite at Woodstock Hospital brings quality chemotherapy services to the community of Woodstock and Oxford County. Care in our community eliminates the anxiety of receiving treatment in an unfamiliar setting and provides the opportunity to develop close relationships and a support system with other local residents.

For Regina, the opportunity to receive care at our Chemo Clinic meant care closer to home. Having just moved to Woodstock a year before her diagnoses with breast cancer, Regina had the option of Woodstock or London, but she chose Woodstock.

“Because of a smaller facility, I found the doctor’s, nurses and volunteers very caring, kind and helpful,” Regina wrote in a letter about why she supports our Chemo Clinic. “I felt, I was part of a family whenever I had to go for my treatment.”

Before moving to Woodstock, Regina was familiar with the Ottawa Cancer Clinic where her husband received chemo treatments. Regina found Woodstock Hospital’s Chemo clinic more tranquil and quiet, compared to the big centres.

The equipment in our Chemo Clinic enables our nurses to provide the best possible care to patients receiving cancer treatment. The clinic’s atmosphere makes the patient’s experience as comfortable as possible. Experiences like Regina’s reinforce our initiatives’ importance.
