At Melbourne Private Hospital we offer compassionate cancer care by combining essential medical treatment with care and sensitivity towards your mental and emotional wellbeing.

We offer a comprehensive, integrated and holistic program led by expert cancer specialists, doctors and nurses whose professional life is committed to your wellbeing.

We connect and collaborate with two major tertiary cancer care centres - Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and the Royal Melbourne Hospital – which enables us to provide you with a world-class cancer care in the heart of the Parkville medical precinct.

Melbourne Private Hospital is aligned with WEHI, a powerful research hub that is enabling ground-breaking developments in many areas including cancer and immunology

Your cancer care in one location

We’re an integrated cancer service, all in one location. Onsite we offer chemotherapy for inpatients and outpatients in our Day Infusion Centre; radiology; pathology; haematology; surgery; and recovery in our oncology unit with a team of dedicated allied health professionals working together for you.

Holistic and personalised treatment

Being diagnosed with cancer and undergoing treatment can be a really tough time for our patients and their families, and as such, we support your mental health and wellbeing.

All patients have access to on-site allied health support including a breast care nurse, stomal therapy nurse, dietitian, and palliative care. And an inpatient physiotherapist and occupational therapist.

We can help you access off-site counsellors and social workers and connect you with Cancer Council Victoria.

Our teams all work closely and collaborate so they’re across all aspects of your treatment to ensure you receive the best possible care.

We can help you access the Look Good, Feel Better program which supports adults and teens to manage appearance-related side effects and boost confidence whilst going through treatment.
