James and Edna Claydon Radiation Treatment Clinic to improve patient care

patient_treatmentGreat things are possible when people and organizations come together to support a worthy cause. One such example is the James and Edna Claydon Radiation Treatment Clinic, located at the QEII Health Sciences Centre (QEII) in Halifax, which was officially unveiled on October 11, 2012.

“It’s a sad fact that cancer has touched most Nova Scotians’ lives in one way or another,” said Premier Darrell Dexter. … “This state-of the-art facility means more Nova Scotians living with cancer will get the care they need, sooner.”

The clinic is the result of a partnership with the federal and provincial governments, Capital Health, and the QEII Foundation. The QEII Foundation contributed $4 million to the project, through the generosity of many donors including James and Edna (George) Claydon who donated $1.5 million to help with the expansion.

Located in a new wing of the Nova Scotia Cancer Centre in Halifax, the clinic includes three new Varian six-mega volt linear accelerators, bringing the total number of linear accelerators in use at the QEII Health Sciences Centre to seven.
