Welcome to the Provis Infusion Clinic
The Provis Infusion Clinic is committed to the delivery of patient-focused services to assist physicians in the management of their patients.
At Provis Infusion Clinic we provide chemotherapy and other infusion services for treatments that are currently not covered under Ontario’s provincial health insurance plan thereby allowing physicians and their patients increased access to certain medications.
Our individualized service is delivered by highly trained professional staff in a non-institutional, friendly environment while operating under the highest standards and observing the Canada Health Act.
Patient safety is paramount to our service offering – we operate in a similar manner to a hospital chemotherapy unit. All infusions are performed by highly skilled oncology nurses, supervised by an on-site physician. All medication are compounded on-site, by pharmacy technicians, under a bio-hazard hood, supervised by oncology pharmacists.
Provis Infusion Clinic is a private Canadian corporation, not affiliated with any other organization or institution.
We look forward to being of service to you.

ASCO News – Early use of docetaxel with hormone therapy prolongs survival in prostate cancer trialStudy results presented at the ASCO annual meeting suggest that adding docetaxel to standard hormone therapy as part of first-line treatment for men with newly diagnosed, advanced hormone-sensitive prostate cancer can extend survival, compared with chemotherapy alone. Lead author Christopher Sweeney noted "this is the first study to identify a strategy that prolongs survival in newly diagnosed metastatic prostate cancer," adding that "the benefit is substantial and warrants this being a new standard treatment." http://www.firstwordpharma.com/node/1214202#axzz33a0EwLJQ
