Cancer Services

Ramsay Health understands that being diagnosed with cancer can be a daunting and confusing time. Our Ramsay CancerCare services are here to support you and your loved ones along every step of the cancer pathway.

Ramsay CancerCare offers you the best in personalised care, with surgical and medical expertise, tailored treatment plans and coordinated support services available across our hospital network. Our expert team can guide you through your diagnosis and treatment and empower you in your physical rehabilitation and recovery.

We believe that taking a holistic view of cancer care and investing in your wellbeing will optimise your treatment outcomes and improve your quality of life.

You can access Ramsay CancerCare at 27 hospitals across our network. We provide a mix of Comprehensive Cancer Care Facilities, Integrated Cancer Care Facilities and Regional Day Oncology Facilities to meet the needs of patients and the local community.

Our network and services are constantly expanding as we strive to help all Australians have access to personalised, coordinated, and quality cancer care.

Our Comprehensive Cancer Care Facilities offer specialist surgical and medical expertise, sophisticated imaging and diagnostics, cutting edge treatment options, survivorship and wellness services, and leading research and clinical trials – all under the one roof.

When you access Ramsay CareCare through a Comprehensive Cancer Care Facility, you may also receive access to:

  • A CancerCare Navigator – a dedicated care coordinator, who will work with you and your family to facilitate continuity of care across your various treatment teams.
  • The ACTIVATE Rehab Program – a 6-week rehabilitation program especially designed for patients who have suffered from a functional decline as a result of their cancer treatment.

Access to CancerCare Navigation and the ACTIVATE Rehab Program may vary by facility. Click on the links below to read more about the Comprehensive Cancer Care facility nearest you.

Additionally, these Ramsay Health Care hospitals provide an integrated treatment pathway for cancer patients, usually surgery and chemotherapy, with radiation and other associated services being provided locally.

Our Integrated Cancer Facilities provide initial cancer treatment, such as surgery and chemotherapy, to our patients. Additional treatment and support services, including radiotherapy and allied health are provided by other trusted suppliers within the local community.

To service regional patients, the below facilities offer day oncology treatment, as well as medical and diagnostic services.
