In partnership with others, Osler provides progressive, timely and compassionate services for cancer prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment.

We set ourselves the highest standards at Osler. Every day, we plan, review and adjust our cancer services to meet patient needs – and exceed their expectations. We also work with other health care partners to expand the services we can offer our patients and to make sure their overall cancer care is as seamless as it can be.

Our services include:

  • Inpatient oncology inclusive of all major diagnoses except acute leukemia and radiation therapy.
  • Close linkages to tertiary centres to support the continuum of care
  • Radiation consults and follow-up on site
  • Access to Positron Emission Tomography (PET),  a special scan used to evaluate cancer
  • Psychosocial support (e.g: adjustment counselling, help with implications of illness such as financial, housing, palliation, childcare and transportation).
  • General medicine services
  • Referral to other community services
  • An Oncology (Cancer Care) outpatient Clinic
  • An Early Detection of Lung Cancer Program
  • Haematology services

Inpatient Services

Early Detection of Lung Cancer

More people in Ontario die from lung cancer than breast, colorectal and prostate cancer combined.  By detecting lung cancer in its early stages, the patient’s chance of survival is greatly increased. That's why Osler has brought a unique lung screening program to our community.
