Introducing Alberta's newest cancer centre

June 30, 2023

Calgary's new cancer centre opens next year, enabling patients to access comprehensive cancer care services in a world-class facility. Opening in 2024, the centre will house:

  • 160 inpatient beds designed for cancer patients.
  • More than 9,200 square metres of dedicated research space.
  • The world’s most advanced diagnostics, such as the MR Linac, which delivers radiation therapy with unprecedented precision.

The OWN.Cancer campaign was instrumental in raising funds for this facility. It received an historic $50- million donation from the Arthur J.E. Child Foundation — the largest donation in AHS history. With this donation, the cancer centre is now officially named the Arthur J.E. Child Comprehensive Cancer Centre.

Joining the AHS Vlog to tell us more are:

  • Wendy Beauchesne, CEO, Alberta Cancer Foundation.
  • Dr. Don Morris, Clinical Department Head of Oncology and Facility Medical Director for the Tom Baker Cancer Centre and new cancer centre.
