Construction on the $35 million Western Cancer Centre at Dubbo has reached its highest point, with a topping-out ceremony held today to celebrate the milestone.
The new cancer centre will provide patients living in regional and remote areas of NSW with improved access to life-saving cancer diagnostic and treatment services much closer to home.
When completed, the centre will include 16 chemotherapy spaces, a bunker for radiation treatment and a PET CT scanner for cancer diagnostics. It will also include a wellness space to provide support and well-being services to patients and their families.
Following the topping out ceremony, work will continue on the structure of the building followed by the internal fit-out.
Construction of the Western Cancer Centre is happening in parallel with the construction of the new three-storey hospital building being delivered under the $150 million Dubbo Hospital Redevelopment Stages 3 & 4 project.
Works across the campus are being carefully staged to ensure all current patients services are maintained during this significant construction period.
Construction of Western Cancer Centre is scheduled for completion in 2021.
