GenesisCare and Ramsay Health Care mark joint venture with advanced medical technology

Health Industry Hub | March 3, 2021 |

MedTech News: A private hospital has opened a new comprehensive cancer centre, equipped with the latest medical technology, to give patients greater treatment options and better outcomes.

The centre at Hollywood Private Hospital in Perth opened in late February and features the Brainlab’s ExacTrac Dynamic system, which combines high-speed thermal surface-tracking technology with advanced x-ray monitoring, to deliver highly precise doses of radiation to tumours while minimising exposure to surrounding healthy tissue.

It is the first of its kind in Western Australia and marks a joint venture between GenesisCare and Ramsay Health Care.

The system heralds a new era for stereotactic radiation therapy in WA, where cancer accounts for about three in every 10 deaths.

Interview links will be provided next week.

The $48 million Hollywood Consulting Centre is a world-class facility, bringing together a suite of cancer services designed to complement the existing cancer services at the hospital.

Hollywood Private Hospital CEO Peter Mott said the new centre ensured patients undergoing cancer treatment had full access to the latest technology and techniques.

“The Hollywood Consulting Centre brings together leading experts to focus on the early diagnosis, treatment and aftercare of a wide range of cancers,” he said.

“Patients will receive integrated cancer care with medical and radiation oncologists, haematologists, surgeons, radiologists, nurses and clinical trial researchers, all on the one campus.”

Services available at the centre include CT, MRI, nuclear medicine, real-time x-ray tracking, ultrasound, radiotherapy treatment and mammography.

“Having worked in the local community for more than 20 years, it is an absolute privilege to partner with Ramsay Health Care to open this new cancer centre, which will offer local cancer patients access to a multidisciplinary team of specialists, integrated services, innovative technology and world-class clinical trials,” Dr Zissiadis said.

Mr Mott said a multidisciplinary approach to cancer care would lead to improved outcomes.

“We are proud to be officially opening the Hollywood Consulting Centre, which will ensure patients have access to comprehensive cancer care at Hollywood,” he said.
