There’s a new sound ringing at the North Bay Regional Health Centre. 

A chemotherapy bell has been set up.  

Patients completing chemotherapy locally can now share and celebrate their important milestone with their fellow patients and care team.

Laurie Devine, former patient and Clerical Team Lead in the ER shared her experience and rang the newly unveiled Chemotherapy Bell for the first time in the unit.

She received treatment locally and in Sudbury and completed all treatments on August 9th.

“The love and support of my family and my NBRHC family was overwhelming and made this journey bearable,” says Devine.  “We don’t always appreciate the cost of advanced medical equipment and technology until we need it.”

“Today we unveil a bell of celebration and hope,” says Paul Heinrich, President and CEO, NBRHC. “This bell is funded through kind donations and we thank our community for having an impact on patient experiences.”

There are 10 treatment stations in the Chemotherapy Unit at NBRHC. 

In 2020-21, over 2700 treatments were performed for local patients.
