Icon Group CEO, Mark Middleton has been awarded The Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) at today’s (13 June 2022) Queen’s Birthday Honours. This prestigious award recognises individuals who have demonstrated outstanding service, or exceptional achievement worthy of particular recognition.
In his 25-year career, Mark has made a significant contribution to Australian cancer care. Having grown up in regional Victoria, Mark had seen the stark healthcare gap faced by regional communities and wanted to change that reality. In 2007 he co-founded Radiation Oncology Queensland (ROQ) opening a radiation oncology facility in Toowoomba, Queensland where patients were previously travelling long distances into Brisbane. This centre rapidly improved local care and increased access to cancer treatment for Toowoomba and the entire Darling Downs region, this soon extended to more centres in Queensland followed by what would become Icon Group in 2016.
