CancerCare Manitoba (CCMB) is the provincially mandated cancer agency and is responsible for setting strategic priorities and long-term planning for cancer and blood disorders. CCMB provides clinical services to both children and adults. The cancer services the organization provides to Manitobans include prevention, early detection, multidisciplinary cancer treatment, supportive and end-of-life care. CCMB is also responsible for radiation protection throughout the province. In addition, the Research Institute at CCMB investigates all aspects of cancer and blood disorders, including research to improve the patient’s experience while at CCMB.
CancerCare Manitoba relies on the ongoing support of Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living and its close working relationships with regional health authorities to deliver quality cancer services to Manitobans. The financial assistance provided by the donations of Manitobans to the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation is vital to undertaking research and providing quality care to Manitobans.
The organization’s multidisciplinary approach to patient care attracts experts in medical, radiation and surgical oncology, hematology, the best and brightest scientists, passionate nursing staff and other dedicated health-care professionals.
CCMB has seven locations in Winnipeg. The main site at 675 McDermot Avenue provides chemotherapy and radiation treatments, patient support services and houses the Research Institute. In Brandon, in partnership with Prairie Mountain Health, the Western Manitoba Cancer Centre offers residents of western Manitoba access to radiation therapy, chemotherapy and patient support services.
Manitoba patients can receive care close to home thanks to CCMB’s partnerships with regional health authorities.
Through this website, we would like our patients, the public and our healthcare partners to better understand the services that are provided by CancerCare Manitoba, as well as the research and education programs that take place within its facilities.
Everyone who works at CCMB is dedicated to delivering quality care to Manitobans with cancer and blood disorders and I am honoured to lead them. CCMB believes in working with patients as opposed to working for patients. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be happy to hear from you.
