The Mgr. Henri-Cormier Lodge, opened in September 1993, provides accommodation for out-of-town patients receiving cancer treatment at the Dr. Léon-Richard Oncology Centre.
The Lodge makes it easier to access oncology services and recreates an environment that is as close as possible to family life. There are a number of living rooms, a kitchen, a library, and areas for rest and contemplation. The Lodge’s many volunteers organize various activities and recreational pastimes to make patients’ stays more comfortable.
The Mgr. Henri-Cormier Lodge is for people:
- With cancer who are receiving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and/or brachytherapy treatments at the Dr. Léon-Richard Oncology Centre;
- Who are 19 or over (and their companion);
- Live more than 100 km from Moncton;
- Are independent in their daily activities (dressing, eating, moving, toileting);
- Have lost some of their independence but are accompanied by an independent caregiver who meets their needs.
A person accompanying an inpatient who is undergoing cancer treatment on Unit 4D can also stay at the Mgr. Henri-Cormier Lodge.
Priority is given to patients who are receiving treatments. If all rooms are occupied by patients, those accompanying them cannot stay at the lodge.
Lodging and meals
Lodging is free.
Wi-Fi access is free.
The Lodge asks for $1.00 per day for use of the telephone (to help with service fees). Patients can pay the telephone service fee at the front desk of the Lodge at the end of their treatments.
The Lodge’s 45 rooms are comfortable, fully furnished, and tastefully decorated.
- There are 24 rooms with two single beds, including two that are wheelchair-accessible, and one room with a single bed.
- The other 20 rooms each have a double bed for those receiving treatments and their companion.
- Each room has a bathtub, shower, toilet, sink, closet, telephone connected to the front desk, and desk with a lockable drawer.
- Bedding and towels are provided.
Food is provided for breakfast. Everyone is responsible for preparing their own breakfast before 10:00 a.m.
Every day during their treatments, each person receives a meal card to pay for lunch and dinner (the value of each meal is $7.00 and the person has to pay any difference). This meal card is in a holder with the person’s room number on it. The meal card can be used in the cafeteria of the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre and meals must be eaten there.
A weekly or monthly pass can be obtained at the hospital's gift shop for one of the three parking lots at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre.
A few parking spaces are available near the Lodge for a maximum of two hours.

The Lodge is open day and night every weekday, except for long week ends with a holiday that fall on Monday or Friday.
