Icon Group, Australia’s largest dedicated provider of cancer care, is committing the significant new investment into South Australia to drive cancer care closer to home and address health outcomes.
The $50 million investment will cover three new centre openings and a new compounding site, as well as see the installation of South Australia’s first HyperArc and IDENTIFY radiation technologies in early 2022. The investment is expected to support approximately 80 jobs and deliver up to 54,000 treatments per year.
South Australia’s ageing population and regional health disparity makes it a prime spot for further investment into comprehensive cancer care services. Several regions in SA also remain undersupplied with linear accelerator radiation machines as local cancer rates continue to rise.
