Patient Accommodation Fund
Grand River Regional Cancer Centre (GRRCC) is Waterloo Wellington’s cancer centre, supporting a catchment area of over 800,000 people. It has the shortest wait times for cancer services in Ontario and is the ONLY provider of radiation therapy in the region.
After receiving a frightening cancer diagnosis, close to 5,000 people in our community require either intensive radiation or chemotherapy treatment to save their lives. Some must travel across the region to receive these treatments.
Patients who require radiation treatment typically receive treatments five days a week for 4-6 weeks. It leaves many feeling too tired and overwhelmed to travel any significant distance back and forth to the hospital.
Because of this huge strain, Grand River Hospital (GRH) provides compassionate support for these patients by arranging for and funding stays at local hotels in the Region for those who have the extra burden of travel more than 40km.
In 2018/19 GRH supported over 40 patients through the Patient Accommodation Fund at a cost of $72,000. Without this support, many would not be able to receive these life saving treatments.
