Chris O’Brien Lifehouse strives to deliver the best in cancer care, as a not-for-profit, independent comprehensive cancer centre specialising in state-of-the-art advanced cancer care, and rare and complex cases.
Using the latest technology in a modern, purpose-built cancer hospital, our highly experienced clinicians screen, check, diagnose and treat more than 40,000 public and private patients every year – concentrating all their efforts, learning, research and expertise into cancer care alone.
We use a multidisciplinary approach to treatment where teams comprising surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, nurses, and allied health professionals and researchers provide peer-reviewed, tailored, individualised treatment to patients.
Lifehouse is also New South Wales’ and one of Australia’s biggest cancer clinical trials centres, giving our patients access to the world’s newest cancer breakthroughs.
Research and trials are carried out by the same clinicians who treat patients, shortening the path between discovery and new treatments for patients.
International research has confirmed that this approach - being treated by complex cancer specialists working in multi-disciplinary teams supported by research and clinical trials at cancer-only hospitals - results in outcomes that are 5 to 15 per cent better for patients after five years.
