A first for the area
The Western Cancer Centre provides life-saving cancer care to thousands of people living in Dubbo and far western NSW including the communities of Walgett, Bourke and Cobar. The new cancer centre significantly expands chemotherapy services and provides access to radiation therapy and PET CT services in Dubbo for the first time. The cancer centre was built in conjunction with the Dubbo Hospital Redevelopment – Stages 3 and 4.
