The Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre stands amongst the best in the world. Putting the needs of patients first, delivering the most thorough and individualised cancer treatments and care available today.
Specialist cancer clinics enable patients to see multiple specialists on the same day, in the same Centre.
Spacious cancer wards will accommodate more inpatients. Larger single and shared rooms, all with ensuites.
Comfortable palliative care. Peaceful and private, boasting many single rooms with balconies, so patients can spend quality time with those they love.
Double the day Oncology. Patient treatment pods provide privacy and personal space while patients undergo chemotherapy. The area includes a power supply so patients can listen to their music, watch a movie on their laptop or attend to work. Bathrooms are spacious and conveniently located.
World-class Radiotherapy. Within the Centre there are three state-of-the-art Linear Accelerators (for the delivery of radiotherapy) with room for a fourth. Patients can receive their treatment in the one facility, purpose designed around the needs of radiotherapy patients.
Apheresis Service. Apheresis is Greek, meaning "to take away". Patients whose stem cells are being collected for bone marrow transplants will enjoy the new facilities now co-located with other specialist care services.
The Centre builds on cancer care expertise that the Austin Hospital, in Heidelberg Victoria (Australia) has provided since 1882 as part of the Austin Health.
It brings together the best of cancer care, research and education and provides a significant resource; training a new generation of world-class cancer experts.
Stage 1 of the Centre is open to day patients since the July 2012, which includes the Wellness Centre.
By mid 2013 the whole Cancer and Wellness Centre will open. When you make a secure online donation you will be giving a gift that keeps on giving.
