MUHC receives $16 M for new Cedars Cancer Centre

September 16, 2014

The McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) last week received several significant donations, marking the completion of its The Best Care for Life campaign. It was also announced that the new MUHC Cancer Centre, to be located at McGill’s new superhospital, will be known as the Cedars Cancer Centre, in recognition of the continued support of the Cedars Cancer Institute, a member of the Rossy Cancer Network (RCN). Cedars' mission is to support comprehensive cancer care for all cancer patients. In addition to its previous donation of $30 M for the creation of the RCN, the (Larry and Cookie) Rossy Family Foundation committed $12 M; a further $4.6M was committed by private donors Andrew Lutfy and Andy Chelminski. “This modern centre will allow our medical professionals to continue to be pioneers in cancer diagnosis and treatment while providing patients with the highest level of care and support. Patients and their families will benefit from having everything they require in one location, in a space that has been conceived and designed to optimize as much as possible the patient experience,” said Armen Aprikian, Chief of MUHC’s Cancer Care Mission. MUHC News Release | Montreal Gazette
