Breast and Cancer Centre - Services

Construction of the Victorian Government’s $10 million Maroondah Breast Cancer Centre project is now complete, with the centre on track to open on April 6, 2018. This exciting project will provide a purpose-built facility that brings together the best breast screening, breast cancer treatment and supportive care service.

The new centre will be a ‘one-stop shop’ for women utilising breast screen services and receiving treatment for breast cancer. 

Co-located on the Maroondah Hospital site, the centre will provide services closer to home for thousands of patients.

  •  While co-located on the hospital site, there will be a separate entrance for users of the centre from that of the hospital
  • Services will be available outside of normal business hours.
  • The facility will feature:
    - An additional mammography screening room, screening an extra 5520 women each year
    - Allied health rooms which will provide for an additional 7200 patients each year
    - Consulting rooms where medical professionals can see an extra 12,800 patients each year
    - A breast nurse consulting room, supporting an additional 2400 patients each year.

The project is part of the Maroondah Hospital master plan.
