The Ottawa Hospital and Elekta Forge Long-Term Strategic Partnership Agreement
Date:5/27/2009

Agreement to create world class cancer management centre of excellence harnessing state-of-the-art Elekta technologies

OTTAWA, May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Elekta and The Ottawa Hospital (Ottawa, Ontario) have embarked on a decade-long mutual support project that will create an advanced cancer treatment centre. Part of The Ottawa Hospital, The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre (TOHCC), will be equipped with radiation therapy systems, as well as workflow enhancing software and treatment planning systems, enabling TOHCC to provide sophisticated therapeutic services in a chartless, paperless clinical environment.

Among the largest Canadian cancer centres, TOHCC has undergone extraordinary growth in its cancer management capacity over the last decade, and steadily has increased its complement of Elekta radiation treatment systems during that period. Its latest expansion to a new site at Queensway Carleton Hospital presented the hospital with an opportunity to evolve into a national/North American leader with global potential.

"We needed to identify a provider with whom we could partner for long-term sustainability and future innovation in radiation therapy," said Greg Doiron, TOHCC Clinical Director. "We determined Elekta was best positioned to move us into our next development phase and help us achieve our long-term objectives, in addition to our short-term need, which is improving patients' access to healthcare."

Advanced technology

Under the partnership agreement, The Ottawa Hospital will acquire four Elekta Synergy(R) treatment systems, two to be sited at The Ottawa Hospital's General Campus and two to be operated
