The Western Manitoba Cancer Center (WMCC), located in Brandon, MB, opened its doors in July 2011 as a joint venture with Cancer Care Manitoba and Prairie Mountain Health. WMCC is the only Cancer treatment center located outside of Winnipeg that provides radiation therapy treatments and chemotherapy services, and houses the only above ground Radiation treatment unit in the province. Most cases can be treated at WMCC, but there may be some, which require more specialized treatment at Cancercare Manitoba in Winnipeg.
