There are more than 1,600 new cancer diagnoses in the ACT each year and the local demand for care is expected to increase in the next decade with predictions that 55% more cancer treatments will be needed.
The official opening of Icon Cancer Centre took place alongside the opening of Qscan Canberra. Qscan Canberra is a premium PET-CT and oncology imaging service enabling the execution of novel and cutting-edge procedures. Both providers are co-located in the purpose-built Canberra Specialist Medical Centre alongside the University of Canberra’s allied health service. This state-of-the-art facility brings together leading educators, researchers and healthcare providers to offer local patients greater choice to receive cancer treatment close to home in a timely manner.
