Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre (BCHC) provides diagnostic imaging, radiation therapy and cancer awareness programmes for residents of Bermuda regardless of one’s ability to pay. As a registered Bermuda Charity #070, BCHC’s focus is exclusively on serving the community to build healthier lives free of cancer and disease.

 

 

In May 2017, BCHC opened Bermuda’s only state-of-the-art Radiation Therapy Unit. Its Varian TrueBeam machine is one of the most comprehensive radiation machines available on the market and can treat roughly 95 percent of known cancers, making it ideal for a relatively isolated jurisdiction like Bermuda which serves patients with a range of cancers. Patients’ treatment planning and the facility operations are overseen by the highly specialised team at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Centre, ranked 4th in the USA in cancer care.

 

 

For the majority of radiation patients, there is no longer the need to travel overseas for months at a time, which will help to improve treatment outcomes by eliminating the stresses of being isolated from friends and loved ones.

 

 

BCHC’s longstanding commitment to providing leading technology dates back to 2008 when it began offering the Island’s first Digital Mammography exams. In 2018, BCHC will launch its fully-integrated oncology suite which will promote nutritional and mind-body therapies to complement standard cancer treatments such as radiation therapy.

 

 

Always striving to meet and exceed international standards, BCHC has earned the Bermuda National Standards Certification (BNSC) in 2014 and the America College of Radiology’s (ACR) Breast Imaging Centre for Excellence designation in 2013. It is a member of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and has a partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society providing a Cancer Information Service for the Island.

 

 

Fundraising and cancer awareness programmes are also a priority. BCHC raises funds to support patients who could not otherwise afford access to diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy services. It also works with schools, summer camps and other groups to provide prevention and health presentations such as its popular SunSmart programme, which educates young people about health habits that reduce the detrimental effects of sun exposure.

 

 

Through advanced technology, a deep commitment to community health, and a caring, patient-centred, integrated approach, Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre provides superior services for anyone seeking comprehensive cancer services on the Island.
