The bunker technology is a modular space saving solution which allows for radiation oncology services to be established in places where there would otherwise not have the space to build the facilities. Mark Middleton, CEO of Icon Group, said Icon Group’s commitment to healthcare innovation and improved access to quality cancer care across Australia and beyond informed investments such as this one in Veritas.
“Icon Group is focused on expanding to deliver cancer care where people live. We have a long pipeline of growth ahead of us; this investment into modular bunker technology will support that growth trajectory by allowing us to take radiation oncology services to places otherwise not possible because of space restrictions and geographical locations,” Mr Middleton said.
“Usually radiation oncology requires large concrete bunkers, however this technology provides the absolute latest in radiation shielding without a large physical footprint. The result is the ability to provide cancer services in more areas, an outcome that can only be good for cancer patients and access to exceptional cancer care.”
