Perth & Smiths Falls Hospital NEW Chemo Service

Official Opening of Chemotherapy Services Room  
The Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital has worked with the Regional Systemic Treatment Program in Kingston, part of Cancer Care Ontario to strengthen the regional capacity to optimize appropriate delivery of care for systemic treatment for certain types of cancer. The delivery of safe, high-quality systemic treatment (ST) or chemotherapy treatment is supported in part through a regional framework and will benefit the patients who reside in our catchment area.

As the demand for chemotherapy treatment services grows, there is a need to continue to build upon existing relationships with hospitals and healthcare partners in the South Eastern Ontario region to support regionally-optimized and appropriate delivery of treatment.

Thanks to the generous donations through the Great War Memorial Hospital Foundation, the original chemo room has upgraded the equipment and completed a renovation of the space. 

This room is dedicated to celebrating the lives of Hilary Drummond, Dr. Erin Savage and Yarrow Viets.  All of these ladies’ lives have touched family, friends and co-workers in Lanark County and the health care community here.
