Fighting against cancer is a long and painful journey that requires courage, strength and determination. There are countless obstacles along the way, from cancer diagnosis to receiving treatment, and from coping with side effects of treatment to getting back on one’s feet after recovery. As medical professionals, we understand that statistical facts hardly do justice to what cancer patients have been through during their battle against cancer. Here at the Hong Kong Integrated Oncology Centre (HKIOC), cancer patients are not alone in this battle and we will offer all kinds of support that help them pass through this challenge.
Established in 2015, the Hong Kong Integrated Oncology Centre and the Hong Kong Integrated Diagnostic Imaging Centre have been dedicated to providing quality and holistic multidisciplinary specialist services for cancer diagnosis, treatment and wellness services. Since 2016, HKIOC has forged a strategic partnership with the Hong Kong Adventist Hospital Oncology Centre (HKAHOC), introducing the concept of daycare cancer treatment that entails integrated services across disciplines. Cancer patients could choose to receive treatment in HKIOC’s daycare centre at their convenience, and be referred to HKAHOC located in Stubbs Road if needed. With a range of state-of-the-art radiotherapy including TomoTherapy and Y-90 radioembolization, HKAHOC provides quality in-patient services and emergency hospital care.
