Gartner continuing to support cancer care as part of the White Coat Challenge

 

Gartner enthusiastically returned to the White Coat Challenge for a second year in support of cancer care at The Ottawa Hospital. A select group ofOttawaarea businesses, including Gartner are helping facilitate the purchase an important software upgrade for the CyberKnife through their support.

The CyberKnife is the world’s first and only robotic radiosurgery system, offering pain-free, non-invasive treatment for cancer patients. Thanks to the White Coat Challenge, this new software will:

  • reduce radiation treatment times by roughly 30%
  • potentially increase the number of Cyberknife patients seen annually by 50%
  • mean faster treatments for patients, allowing their life to return to normal more quickly

In 2011, Gartner and other White Coat Challenge companies, collectively raised funds to equip a chemotherapy treatment bay at the Irving Greenberg Family Cancer Centre. “We are proud of the way these businesses and their staff answered the call to help The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre continue to provide excellent care to patients currently receiving cancer treatment,” said Tim Kluke, President and CEO of The Ottawa Hospital Foundation.
