Cedars Cancer Centre
Cedars Cancer Centre is the hub of all cancer care, research and teaching
at the MUHC. It is world-class. It is state of the art. It is a healing environment.
Cedars Cancer Centre is reinventing the way we provide cancer treatment at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC). With oncology services from both the Royal Victoria Hospital and Montreal General Hospital now situated under one roof, this Centre provides patients with some of the finest cancer care facilities—all in one location—in the country.
Cedars Cancer Centre consolidates all aspects of the MUHC’s Cancer Care Mission in one location. From medical, surgical and radiation oncology to supportive and palliative care, nutrition and social services, patients of all ages have access to the latest in cancer treatments in a thoughtfully designed environment that supports their physical, emotional and spiritual healing.
“This modern centre will allow our medical professionals to continue to be pioneers in cancer diagnosis and treatment while providing patients with the highest level of care and support.” - Dr. Armen Aprikan
