Stomach Cancer Program Patient Navigator Guide

Stomach cancer care at North York General Hospital (NYGH), is provided through a multidisciplinary team approach. This involves a system of health care providers, clinics and services focused on stomach cancer patients and their families. This focus means that patients receive evidence-based care, following best practices in a multidisciplinary, collaborative environment. Here at NYGH, we offer a personalized approach through our patient navigator who will support you every step of the way.

At NYGH, we feel that survivorship is an important part of the cancer journey and we work to provide the best support and resources for you and your family. Our goal is for survivors and their families to attain their best quality of life and return to their community and lives.


Why choose NYGH’s stomach cancer program? 

NYGH offers support for patients along their entire journey. We are one of the very few hospitals in Canada to review every single stomach cancer case by a multidisciplinary tumour board.

For the sixth year in a row, North York General has received the Cancer Care Ontario (CCO) award for Top Performing Hospital for Wait Times (decision to treat to treatment) and for the third year in a row, the CCO award for meeting all targets for time from referral to consult.
