Icon Writers / 12 Jun, 2023

The recently announced state-of-the-art Icon Cancer Centre in Noosa, Queensland took a significant step forward today as the team gathered to turn the soil on our latest development helping to bring care to more people.

Set to open in 2024, the centre is Icon’s second radiation oncology facility on the Sunshine Coast and 18th centre in Queensland. This follows the recently opened centre at Auchenflower, Wesley in South-East Queensland. Icon currently owns and operates 38 cancer centres across Australia. 

Icon Group CEO, Mark Middleton, Global Director – Icon Cancer Centre, Ross Koscharsky, Director Radiation Oncology, Dr Marcel Knesl, and Deputy Director Radiation Oncology, A/Prof Matthew Foote gathered onsite, on the lands of the Kabi Kabi people, to symbolically mark the start of site preparations. 

On completion, the Icon Cancer Centre Noosa will employ an experienced multidisciplinary team of cancer care specialists and collaborate with local healthcare providers and partners to offer seamless cancer care in the heart of Noosa.  

This project will be part of Stockwell’s Noosa Civic Medihub and provide cutting-edge radiation therapy technology, including an advanced Varian TrueBeam linear accelerator.
