- Diagnosis & Treatment
Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre is one of the world’s leading cancer research, education and treatment centres globally and is Australia’s only public hospital solely dedicated to caring for people affected by cancer.
We have over 2,500 staff, including more than 580 laboratory and clinical researchers, all focused on providing better treatments, better care and potential cures for cancer.
Our cancer treatment and care services at our main centre are delivered in partnership with The Royal Women’s Hospital and The Royal Melbourne Hospital – all co-located within easy distance of one another.
While the majority of our care services are provided at Peter Mac, our patients may from time-to-time be referred to The Women’s and/or The Royal Melbourne hospital for particular treatments. We ask that you please pay particular attention to your appointment letter, which will tell you where your appointment is located. Our process for referring patients to Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre remains the same.
Referred patients will be allocated a unique patient record number that will enable them to be identified and move between the three hospitals with their medical history and treatment plan seamlessly accessible by all members of our service caring for each patient.
This partnership approach to cancer care has been developed over a number of years by respected senior clinicians representing all three hospitals.
It aims to capitalise on the shared expertise of leading cancer clinicians working across the precinct, delivering better outcomes for people affected by cancer.
A number of our services including Familial Cancer Centre , Haematology and Palliative Care are now fully integrated departments providing services across the three hospitals, run as a partnership by Peter Mac and The Royal Melbourne Hospital. Our Intensive Care Unit Services are provided in the new facility at The Royal Melbourne Hospital. The Cancer Clinical Trials Units from the three hospitals have been integrated to form Parkville Cancer Clinical Trials Service, which is located at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
RADIATION THERAPY SERVICES
In addition to our main centre in Melbourne, we also provide Radiation Therapy Services at our centres in Box Hill, Moorabbin, Sunshine and Bendigo.
WELLBEING AND COMPLEMENTARY THERAPIES
Many patients also ask about therapies that may help during and after cancer treatment. Peter Mac has five centres across Victoria, in Melbourne, Bendigo, Box Hill, Moorabbin, and Sunshine. Our main site is in the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre building in Melbourne where we deliver cancer care through our public hospital, conduct research and provide cancer education to health professionals and cancer specialists.
Peter Mac’s radiation therapy services are offered at Monash Cancer Centre in Moorabbin in partnership with Southern Health; in Box Hill at Epworth Eastern Medical Centre; at Sunshine Hospital Radiation Therapy Centre in partnership with Western Health; and at Bendigo Radiotherapy Centre in partnership with Bendigo Health.
