A newly-renovated South Peace cancer clinic aims to provide improved care for cancer patients and their families.
Community and health leaders made the announcement at the Dawson Creek and District Hospital’s expanded South Peace Community Cancer Clinic on Friday.
The clinic has received nearly $450,000 in renovations and new equipment. One of the highlights of the bigger clinic is a self-contained unit that reduces outside exposure for immunocompromised clients while they are receiving treatment.
The clinic has tripled in size, and now accommodates up to eight clients. The furniture and décor is designed to create a sense of tranquility, and each patient area has individual lighting controls.
Dawson Creek’s new clinic will offer not only treatment, but also prevention, early detection, and palliative care.
