The Princess Margaret Hospital was founded as the Ontario Cancer Institute in 1952 by the Ontario government. Originally located at 500 Sherbourne Street in Toronto, the hospital was officially opened in 1958 by Her Royal Highness the Princess Margaret and was re-named Princess Margaret Hospital to mark the occasion. In 1996, the hospital officially re-opened at its current location on University Avenue, the heart of Canadas innovation hub and the greatest concentration of teaching and research hospitals in the country. Her Royal Highness the Princess Margaret was there once again to officially re-open the now 130 bed cancer hospital. In 1998, the Princess Margaret Hospital became part of the University Health Network, merging the oncology services of Toronto General and Toronto Western hospitals with those of Princess Margaret, making Princess Margaret Hospital the largest comprehensive cancer program in the country.In 2012, Princess Margaret Hospital was renamed the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre has 12 site groups and 26 specialty clinics, and almost 3,000 staff who see over 400,000 patient visits every year. Its 800,000 square feet house 130 inpatient beds, 373,000 square feet of research space and 17 radiation treatment machines, making it one of the largest comprehensive cancer treatment facilities in the world and the largest radiation treatment centre in Canada.Princess Margaret sees over 1,000 patients every day and has the capacity to deliver diagnostic, treatment and follow-up care to close to 200,000 patients and their families every year. In 2010, we saw 18,103 new patients. Among the services provided this past year, we delivered 6,191 cancer surgeries, as well as 29,801 outpatient chemotherapy treatments, 10,058 courses of radiation treatment, and 257 stem cell transplants.Through ongoing research, education and innovation, Princess Margaret continues to be on the frontiers of medical, surgical and radiation oncology, embracing the latest technology and international best-practices and setting standards for patient care.
