Nova Scotia Health Authority, its cancer care program and government recognize that Yarmouth and area cancer patients and their families experience a significant burden in having to travel three or more hours for radiation treatment. In 2017 and 2018, the NSHA Cancer Care Program, with the support of government, conducted the Yarmouth Area Cancer Services Review in response to requests from the community, some health professionals and local politicians to have radiation services offered at the Yarmouth Regional Hospital.  For more information, please click on the following links:
