Who We Are

The Peter Gilgan Centre for Women’s Cancers is a virtual program located at Women’s College Hospital (WCH), which supports patient-centred cancer care in partnership with WCH’s Surgical and Gynecology Services, Medical Imaging, Specialized Medicine Services, the Genetics and Hereditary Breast Cancer Clinic and the After Cancer Treatment Transition (ACTT) Clinic.  

The Centre draws together excellence in researchclinical careinnovation and education for women’s cancers. Our team is driven by a powerful vision to give every woman every chance to access the highest standard of cancer care no matter where she lives in Canada.

We are working to make changes in the lives of people touched by women’s cancers by offering patient-centred care at all stages, providing training for health care professionals, empowering individuals with the information they need throughout their cancer journey and revolutionizing care through groundbreaking research.  

What We Do

Our clinics at WCH, in partnership with The Centre, offer access to screening and prevention, resources, tools, services and educational materials to empower patients with the information they need. These clinics provide access to diagnosis for breast, endometrial, cervical and thyroid cancers, they perform preventative surgeries for breast and ovarian cancer and offer long-term aftercare, surveillance and support for cancer patients.

In collaboration with these clinics, we are committed to supporting patients through their cancer care journey. Our priorities are to help individuals reduce their risk of getting cancer, diagnose symptoms that are suggestive of cancer, provide access to screening so we can detect cancer early and offer wrap-around support after a diagnosis.
