To transform cancer treatment for Australians with cancer through an environment thriving on research, discovery and uncompromising care.
To improve the quality of life for Australian cancer patients, carers and their families by advancing the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, care, cure and prevention of cancer.
Our model of care
A culture of uncompromising, patient-centred care underpins everything we do.
Our integrated model of care enables you to access specialist cancer services delivered by a multi-disciplinary team under one roof, eliminating the need for you to navigate a series of appointments at different locations.
We provide cancer treatment in a way that supports, nurtures and empowers patients, their families and carers through mutually beneficial partnerships. We strive to ensure that your treatment and care decisions include your wants, needs and preferences, enabling participation in your own care.
In addition to top-class medical facilities, Chris O’Brien Lifehouse offers complementary therapies and allied health services through the Lifehouse LivingRoom, a unique supportive care and integrative oncology centre. The LivingRoom provides services, education and therapies to compliment your clinical treatments to improve your outcomes by relieving the symptoms and side-effects of cancer and its treatments.
