More than $20 million will be invested in the new cancer care centre at Acurity’s Wakefield Hospital, which will incorporate the latest oncology technology and treatment techniques to diagnose and treat patients. Once completed, the new centre will have the capacity to treat 900 New Zealanders suffering from a range of cancers every year.
Icon Group CEO, Mark Middleton, said patients will benefit from the most sophisticated radiation oncology services in New Zealand.
“We are delighted to partner with Acurity Health Group, who are a leading operator of private hospitals in New Zealand, to deliver this service. Together, we will improve access to world-class private cancer care. The centre will feature radiation oncology facilities equipped with the latest Varian Truebeam system linear accelerators, which have been designed to advance the treatment of lung, breast, intracranial, prostate, head and neck, and other types of cancer.”
