$54 million cancer centre opens in one of Australia’s fastest growing communities

Health Industry Hub | March 28, 2024 |

MedTech & Diagnostics News: Cancer care provider, GenesisCare, is now treating patients at a new $54 million integrated cancer centre and research hub in Campbelltown, featuring a 6 Star-targeted Green Star building.

Yesterday marked the official opening of the new facility that has the capacity to deliver more than 13,000 cancer treatments annually and create more than 30 immediate jobs in healthcare, growing to 60 jobs as services expand over time.

NSW Health Minister, Ryan Park, said “This fantastic new facility provides greater access to cancer treatments for the local community, closer to home. One of the key services offered at the centre is radiation therapy, with the majority of the treatment costs covered by Medicare depending on individual circumstances.”

The new centre brings advanced cancer care closer to home for the South West Sydney community and people living in the Southern Highlands. The development, comprising four-stories across 3,927sqm of gross floor area, has the ability to upscale and increase capacity to meet future demand in the region as the population grows and ages.

GenesisCare now offers radiation therapy, chemotherapy, haematology, and selection into clinical trials and research programs at the new centre, with plans to offer Theranostics and nuclear medicine in the future. Patients can also access pathology and allied health services offered by our partners under the same roof, with diagnostic imaging to be available in the coming months.

Politicians, local leaders, doctors, and key community members officially opened the building yesterday, marking the completion of Stage 1 of a multi-staged health precinct being developed by Northwest. The site is designed to meet the critical and rapidly growing need for private healthcare in the thriving Macarthur region.

The precinct is surrounded by green open spaces such as Koshigaya Park and is conveniently located close to Narellan Road and the M5, creating ease of access for patients travelling to and from the centre from the wider region.

GenesisCare’s General Manager in NSW, Richard Briggs, said “We’re proud to begin treating cancer patients closer to their homes in South-Western Sydney and the Southern Highlands. GenesisCare strives to provide high-quality care that’s personalised and tailored to the patient. We always aim to treat the person not the condition. Our services will complement and work with existing cancer treatment providers in Campbelltown, supporting one of Australia’s fastest growing cities.

“Our doctors are well established in the local area. They either work, live and teach in South West Sydney and know this community well.”

Mayor of Campbelltown, Dr George Greiss, said “Campbelltown is proud to be the home of this fantastic new facility, which expands on the great work being done in the public sector and will provide much-needed services to our community.

“This facility demonstrates the balance between architectural excellence and high-quality service provision, and the realisation of this project is proof of what can be achieved through a strong partnership. Not only does this facility provide high-value jobs in the heart of our city centre, it ensures strategic land is put to best use for the benefit of our community,” he said.
