Maitland Private Hospital CEO Peter Cizzio says Maitland Integrated Cancer Services, together with Icon Cancer Centre Maitland, will broaden the oncology services available in the region to support cancer patients both in Maitland and the wider Hunter Valley region to access every aspect of their cancer care within the one location.
“We look forward to working hand-in-hand with Icon Cancer Centre to support cancer patients to access all aspects of their care on-site at Maitland Private Hospital. With the establishment of Icon’s radiation oncology service we are now able to offer the community a truly comprehensive service in one location, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, intensive care, infusions, rehabilitation, palliative care, pathology, imaging and consulting,” Mr Cizzio said.
Conveniently located within Maitland Private Hospital, Icon Cancer Centre Maitland is part of Icon Group – Australia’s largest dedicated provider of cancer care. The centre will feature cutting-edge radiation therapy technology including an advanced Varian TrueBeam® linear accelerator, with the capacity to treat over 900 new courses of radiation therapy each year. Patients do not require private health insurance to receive radiation therapy treatments, with up to 80-90% of costs reimbursed by Medicare. The centre will also provide access to allied health, support services and pharmacy.
