The Tom Baker Cancer Centre, a component of a provincial program of cancer control is the tertiary referral centre and the main cancer treatment, research and education facility for southern Alberta.

Integration with the University of Calgary’s Arnie Charbonneau Cancer Institute enables a strong translational and basic research focus.
