Calgary Cancer Centre


What's the latest?

Despite the early snow, the Calgary Cancer Centre (CCC) building continues to grow and here are some of our latest milestones:

  • The concrete structure is now up to Level 8. For context, there are 13 levels above ground and five below
  • Interior construction is underway from the parkade levels up to Level 6
  • Work on the exterior of the building, such as glass installation, has begun
  • The initiative, 'Hope Ties Us Together', has launched and ribbons with messages from patients, family, staff and physicians have been tied to the construction site fencing

The project overall continues to progress on time and on budget. The detailed design of the interior and exterior of the facility is nearly complete and will be finalized later this year. Formal design user meetings with staff, physicians and Patient & Family Advisors are now complete. Comments gathered from those meetings are being used to inform the last phase of feedback being provided to the Design Builder.

What is it?

The new Calgary Cancer Centre (CCC) will be a world-class health care facility and academic centre for the provision of cancer services in Southern Alberta. The CCC will be constructed at the Foothills Medical Centre (FMC) site on the current parking Lot 7. This location is best suited to integrate cancer care with current key programs and services at the FMC site. Construction of the CCC began in fall 2017 with the new facility completed and operational in 2023.

Developed in Partnership with: Alberta Infrastructure, Alberta Health, and Alberta Health Services.

What will it do?

The CCC will increase cancer care capacity in southern Alberta by consolidating and expanding existing services in the Calgary Zone to support integrated and comprehensive cancer care. As outlined in the Provincial Cancer Strategy and the Calgary Cancer Service Plan, the CCC is planned to meet clinical, academic and research needs as a full, comprehensive cancer facility. The CCC will support and deliver an interdisciplinary and integrated care philosophy which accommodates research, education and patient and family centered care, and improve patient outcomes.
