Welcome to the Northeast Cancer Centre
The Northeast Cancer Centre (NECC) of Health Sciences North (HSN) is one of fourteen regional cancer programs in Ontario. The NECC is an Ontario Health - Cancer Care Ontario (OH-CCO) partner which serves a population of more than 600,000 in Northeastern Ontario.
The Cancer Centre currently receives over 3000 new cancer patients each year, and conducts approximately 17,000 chemotherapy visits and 38,000 radiation therapy visits, saving Northern Ontario residents afflicted with cancer and their families the cost and inconvenience of traveling to Southern Ontario for treatment. We also support partnerships between twelve community hospital sites in the Northeast in the provision of specialized cancer care services ordered by the NECC of HSN. NECC strives to keep care close to home and offers a variety of options for interaction with the care team including virtual home-based appointments.
At the Northeast Cancer Centre, we have a team of world-renowned oncologists, scientists and researchers who work on a variety of research and clinical trials that regularly attract the attention of the international medical community.
