Quebec races to meet cancer demand - tech spend ahead at Laval:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Quebec's race against increasing cancer incidence levels is behind its Can$28.7m (US$24m) investment in a new 6,000 square metre oncology centre at the Hopital Cite de la Sante in the south-western city of Laval. However, this amount will not cover high-tech equipment, which will require further funding. The centre, which is expected to be ready by 2010, will feature six treatment rooms containing four linear accelerators (with two more due to be installed at a later date). Cancer levels in Quebec are rising by almost 1,000 cases per year. This year, 39,000 cases are expected, according to Canadian Healthcare Technology, which also reports that Can$36.3m was recently pledged for a new cancer treatment centre at Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital in Montreal.
