POGO Pediatric Oncology Satellite Clinic

 

WHAT IS THE POGO SATELLITE CLINIC AT PRHC?

The Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO) satellite program is a networked, shared-care system based on a partnership between Ontario’s five tertiary hospitals and eight POGO Satellite Centres. Satellite Clinics are located in community hospitals and allow families to receive care closer to home.

POGO and The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) collaborated to create the POGO Pediatric Oncology Satellite Clinic at Peterborough Regional Health Centre (PRHC). This POGO Satellite Clinic helps families by reducing travel time, loss of income, and separation from home and community, while maintaining confidence that young patients are receiving the best quality care, under the direction of The Hospital for Sick Children.
