It is a simple fact that screening saves lives and early detection is the first step in the treatment of colon (colorectal) cancer. Since the Kensington Screening Clinic opened in 2009, we have performed close to 30,000 screening procedures in our state-of-the-art facility.
We are dedicated to improving access for patients requiring screening colonoscopy and gastroscopy. Our goal is to have the Screening Clinic mirror our successful Kensington Eye Institute and contribute even more to cancer screening and treatment. That means not only improving the patient experience with better access to high-quality clinical care and services, but also increasing efficiency through productivity.
