Services are provided by a multidisciplinary team that includes three Medical Oncologists, Registered Oncology Nurses, a Nurse Practitioner, Oncology Pharmacists, Clinical Dietitian, Social Worker, and clerical staff.

GBHS Owen Sound Hospital offers a full range of cancer surgery - breast, colorectal, prostate, lung and gynecological to name a few.
