About Chris O’Brien Lifehouse

Chris O’Brien Lifehouse is a comprehensive cancer centre in Sydney, Australia.

Our model is unique in Australia – a not-for-profit hospital that looks after both private and public patients.

We’re the only hospital in Sydney, and the state of NSW, that offers all aspects of cancer treatment and research under one roof.

Our facilities and services include a world-leading Biomedical Innovation Hub, Australia’s largest Sony Foundation You Can Centre for young people and a wide range of complementary treatment options.

Chris O’Brien Lifehouse attracts Australia’s leading surgeons, oncologists, clinicians and allied health workers who pride themselves on setting new standards for quality cancer treatment and care.

We run regional clinics and an acclaimed training program for international doctors and nurses.

Our purpose-built facility is designed as a contemporary and welcoming space to care for cancer patients as well as their families and loved ones.

We are named after the late Professor Chris O’Brien AO, a renowned head and neck surgeon, who was passionate about creating a specialist centre offering all aspects of cancer treatment.

Since opening in 2013, we have never lost sight of his vision and every day we live by his values of collaboration, excellence, respect, empowerment, nurturing and discovery.
