Our model of care
Lifehouse combines treatment, research, complementary therapies and emotional support in one facility.
We put the patient at the centre of everything we do.
Our integrated model of care allows specialist cancer services to be delivered by a multi-disciplinary team under one roof, eliminating the need for patients to navigate a complex series of appointments at different locations.
Lifehouse provides integrated cancer treatment in a manner that supports, nurtures and empowers patients, their families and carers through mutually beneficial partnerships.
We strive to ensure that treatment and care decisions include a patient’s wants, needs and preferences, enabling participation in their own care.
Benefits of an integrated cancer centre include:
- Increased ability to treat cancers to the very highest standard, particularly rare and complex cases
- Accelerated discovery and development of new innovative treatments
- Increased research opportunities and patient involvement
- Reduced time from diagnosis to the commencement of treatment
- Enhanced training for cancer specialists, researchers and medical staff
- Increased access to clinical trials
In addition to top-class medical facilities, Lifehouse offers complementary therapies and allied health services through the Lifehouse LivingRoom – an integrative medicine centre providing services, education and therapies for use in partnership with clinical treatments to relieve stress, pain and anxiety and manage side effects.
