Who we are
The Chris O'Brien Lifehouse at RPA will be a world-class cancer treatment and research facility providing integrated care to patients and carers, building on the services provided at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital Sydney University precinct at Camperdown, Sydney.
A centre of excellence, The Chris O'Brien Lifehouse at RPA will integrate clinical care, research and education creating opportunities for innovative discoveries, compassionate holistic care and better outcomes for patients.
A charity, Lifehouse at RPA is a not-for-profit Public Benevolent institution. Income will be re-invested to continually innovate and improve services treating both public and private patients.
During 2013, the Sydney Cancer Centre and all its services will transition into the Lifehouse facility which will be open to public and private patients.
What we do
Creating Australia’s largest integrated cancer care facility, The Chris O'Brien Lifehouse at RPA will combine all facets of clinical care; surgery, medical and radiation oncology, research wellness and support services on an out-patient basis.
We will also provide screening programs, diagnosis and treatment, to through-care and post-treatment support.
Our aim is to increase patient participation in clinical trials from the current level because more trials lead to more breakthroughs and better cancer outcomes.
