Cancer Care During COVID-19

Concerns about cancer care and treatment during COVID-19 are normal. It is important these concerns do not stop you from receiving care or treatment. 

Joseph Brant Hospital is committed to safe, quality, patient-centered care. To ensure the safety of patients, visitors and staff, we have made some important changes. Please review them before coming to hospital.

Go to your tests and treatments as scheduled

If you feel worried about coming to the hospital for your cancer care, talk to your health care team. They are here for you.

Do not delay your cancer care because of COVID-19. Go to your appointments as scheduled. Delaying tests and treatment can be dangerous.

In some cases, we may be able to arrange for a virtual visit.
