First consult at new Wimmera Cancer Centre
Last Wednesday was an exciting day for the Wimmera Health Care Group and the wider Wimmera community as the first patients were treated at the new Wimmera Cancer Centre.

Team members were busily moving to the Wimmera Cancer Centre over the past week to enable them to start seeing patients there as planned on Wednesday 23rd January.

Acting CEO Mark Knights said that chemotherapy patients were the first to begin treatment at the new facility and dialysis patients were expected to start treatment there in early February.

“There was a real buzz at the new centre on Wednesday morning. Team members from a range of departments have been busily working to be ready to meet this planned date we had set and they did a great job,” Mr Knights said.

“Professor George Kannourakis, one of our oncologists, set up his office at the new centre on Wednesday morning and his first consult was with Audrey and John Klemm at 8.30am.

“To be in the transition phase over to the new Wimmera Cancer Centre is exciting for everyone involved and we are very grateful to already be at this stage just three and a half years after starting the campaign to get this facility built.”

Mr Knights said they planned to open to the facility to community members during two community open days next month on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th February from 10am to 1pm.
