Dubbo Integrated Cancer centre

The $35 million Dubbo Cancer Centre project aims to deliver high quality cancer care through innovation, education and equity of access.

On 2 June 2017, the NSW Government pledged $10 million in addition to the Federal Government’s $25 million commitment to deliver the Integrated Cancer Centre for Dubbo Hospital.

The Integrated Cancer Centre will include a PET CT Scanner for cancer diagnostics, a bunker for radiation therapy, 16 chemotherapy treatment spaces and a master planned area to future proof an area for a second radiation therapy bunker.

The expansion of the Oncology Unit, which was originally going to be delivered as part of Stages 3 and 4 of the Dubbo Hospital Redevelopment, will be incorporated into the Integrated Cancer Centre as a new build.

Western NSW Local Health District has undertaken extensive work to identify the future cancer service requirements for the area. 

A lead design team has been appointed to undertake further planning and consultation to determine the detailed scope of the project.

The Integrated Cancer Centre project will be delivered in conjunction with the Dubbo Hospital Redevelopment Stages 3 and 4, and follow on from the current construction schedule.
