The Gerry & Nancy Pencer Brain Tumor Centre Mission
To be a “Centre of Excellence” which provides multidisciplinary care, treatment and support for brain tumor patients and their families. To promote translational brain tumor research.
The Centre occupies approximately 5,700 square feet and is located on the 18th floor of Toronto’s Princess Margaret Hospital. A clinic unlike any other, the Centre is designed to be warm and aesthetically pleasing to all who visit. With honey hardwood floors, comfortable and stylish furniture and original oil paintings by Edith Kernerman, and sleek glass sculptures, the atmosphere is meant to encourage optimism and comfort – a home away from home. Fresh cut flowers, soft halogen lighting, a juice bar, and a quiet restful Resource Library round out the unique features of the Centre.
Established in 1998, The Gerry & Nancy Pencer Brain Tumor Centre is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art Centre, providing the highest quality treatment, information and support for brain tumor patients and their families, as well as clinical and translational brain tumor research. What makes the Pencer Centre unique is it’s ability to provide access to a wide range of disciplines and expertise in one comprehensive site.
