About the centre

GenesisCare Newcastle provides holistic care for patients who need radiation therapy treatment. We believe care should be focused on the individual, not the condition. Care should be available when and where the patient needs it most, and it should be designed to give patients the best life outcomes possible.

We are situated on the campus of Lake Macquarie Private Hospital and form a part of the comprehensive Hunter Cancer Centre.

We offer patients:
• Immediate access to a Radiation Oncologist
• Personalised treatment plan for every patient
• Designated free parking
