PEI Cancer Treatment Centre

(Adults over the age of 18)

The PEI Cancer Treatment Centre (also known as the PEICTC) at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the Prince County Hospital Satellite Clinic is focused on specialized care and well-being for individuals diagnosed with cancer. Recognizing that each experience with cancer is unique in cause, symptoms, treatment and challenges, the centre follows a person-centered care approach to cancer care.
