Private Cancer Care Centre at Bowen

Published: 06 Jun 2017

The Bowen Icon Cancer Centre is the first private cancer care facility in the Wellington region dedicated to exceptional cancer care.  The centre is a partnership between Acurity and the Icon Group which is a specialist provider of cancer care in the Asia/Pacific region, with over one million patient interactions and over 200,000 cancer treatments per year.  Initially providing chemotherapy for a range of cancer sites and treatment for blood cancers and disorders; radiation oncology is due to open in 2018. 

Overlooking Trelissick Park, the six-chair day hospital offers ambulatory patients first specialist appointments and a magnificent backdrop for the small and dedicated team to provide world class cancer care.  In addition to a range of cancer treatments, patients will also be able to access allied health services through our partnerships to ensure supportive care needs are met.  Benefits of the private centre include the ability for patients to choose their own oncologist, gain access to unfunded therapies, with consultation and treatment available in a timely manner. An additional bonus for patients is the onsite free parking.  

The centre is a Southern Cross affiliated provider and will be accepting referrals  from late July for patients with private health insurance or self-funding.  Full details of doctors and ways to refer are available through the Cancer tab on the Bowen website or by following the link  http://www.bowen.co.nz/specialists-and-services/our-facilities/bowen-icon-cancer-centre
