The Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) is supporting the North Coast Health Improvement Society’s (NCHIS) Cancer Care Unit Upgrade Project in the amount of $100,000. The $200,000 project includes an increase in space and capacity, improved privacy and comfort for patients and their families, and enhanced treatment technology and tools. The upgrade project will address limitations of the previous space like poor sight lines, isolation of physician from patients and staff, an unwelcoming chemotherapy room, and limited space to accommodate accompanying family and friends. With the number of cancer patients increasing each year, the need for access to local primary care is a priority in the region.
