New artist’s impression released for the Echuca Cancer and Wellness Centre

The $6 million Echuca Cancer and Wellness Centre is one step closer, with new designs unveiled. The new centre will provide patients with world-class care, closer to home.

The project will move Echuca Regional Health’s existing chemotherapy and haemodialysis unit to a new purpose-built centre. This will improve access and comfort for patients while providing a more efficient working environment for staff.

The centre will offer 10 new chemotherapy and haemodialysis treatment chairs. There will be flexible spaces offering increased privacy for patients. These spaces will allow families and carers to interact with clinical teams and other support workers under one roof.

Wellness programs will help to improve the health and wellbeing of cancer patients during treatment and recovery.

Haematologists, medical oncologists, nephrologists and radiation oncologists will all co-locate to the new centre. This will make it easier for patients to access and attend consultations.

The project is expected to create around 20 construction jobs.

An expression of interest for a builder will be released in October 2020 with the tender due to be issued in late 2020.

Construction is expected to begin in early 2021, with the centre expected to open in 2022.
