Progress continues on Adult Stem Cell Transplant Unit construction

Progress continues to be made on construction of the expanded Adult Stem Cell Transplant Unit at the Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre (JHCC). Completion is expected this fall.

The new unit will offer:

  • A new 15-bed inpatient unit for patients undergoing stem cell transplants and other complex malignant hematology cancer treatments.
  • Expanded oncology day services, including 11 additional treatment bays and a renovated pharmacy to support the growth of the expanded stem cell transplant program.
  • Upgraded electrical and emergency generator systems to handle the increase in power load from the expanded stem cell transplant program.

The JHCC is one of three centres providing all forms of stem cell transplants to adult cancer patients in Ontario.
