The Government of Victoria in Australia has opened the new Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre to cater to cancer patients.

The $65m facility features 30 in-patient beds, 30 chemotherapy beds, three radiotherapy bunkers, consulting suites, a wellness centre and 140 new car parking spaces.

The centre will also reach out beyond the border through the establishment of regional information, education and research networks.

It will provide radiotherapy services on the border and throughout North East Victoria.

Minister for Health Jill Hennessy said: “This world class centre offers world class diagnosis, treatment and recovery services for people with cancer on the border.”

“We want to give people with cancer the very best chance possible of surviving the disease and this centre will do just that.”
