Compassionate cancer care is medical treatment combined with an equally important sensitivity to the mental aspects of treatment and how the patient is feeling.
At Holmesglen Private, as well as offering leading chemotherapy and radiation therapy we also offer the Look Good, Feel Better program that helps people manage the appearance-related side effects of treatment.
Ours is a comprehensive, integrated and holistic program led by elite cancer specialists and nurses whose professional life is committed to your wellbeing and happiness, here in the southern suburbs.
At Holmesglen Private, cancer care has come a long way.
Your cancer care
We’re an integrated cancer service, all in one location. And by integration, we mean chemotherapy for inpatients and outpatients, radiation therapy, radiology, pathology, specialist surgery, allied health teams and recovery in our dedicated inpatient oncology unit.
Care in one location
We’re proud to be the only facility in the southern suburbs that offers radiotherapy, oncology and haematology. Radiology and pathology is onsite, as is chemotherapy which is administered at our Infusion Centre.
The ICON Cancer Centre
The ICON Cancer Centre opened in November 2021 and is the latest addition in services to Holmesglen Private. This makes the Holmesglen cancer services truly holistic and offers a one stop shop for all your oncology needs.
The most advanced radiation therapy is used to treat and manage patients, thanks to the Varian HalcyonTM system and Varian IDENTIFYTM surface guided system. The Halcyon system delivers radiation therapy faster, in a quieter and more spacious environment, while IDENTIFY uses real time motion management to increase accuracy and eliminiates the need for patients to receive permanent tattoos. Clinical trials are also available at ICON Cancer Centre.
Holistic and personalised to you, your treatment and how you’re feeling
The diagnosis and treatment of cancer is a tough time for our patients and their families. So while our facilities stand out in the southern suburbs, we also work hard to ensure we devote as much attention to you our patient.
You get full access to Allied Health services including a breast care nurse, social worker, dietitian, physiotherapist, counsellor, lymphedema professionals, and palliative care. The teams collaborate and run regular multi-disciplinary meetings to ensure they’re across all aspects of your treatment to provide the best possible care.
You can also access the ‘Look Good, Feel Better Program’ that supports adults and teens to manage the appearance-related side-effects of cancer treatment so you feel more empowered and confident. Find out more at www.lgfb.org.au.
