Parramatta welcomes new oncology centre

PARRAMATTA Lord Mayor, Cr John Chedid has opened Ramsay Health Care’s new Oncology and Infusion Centre at Westmead.

Cr Chedid said the new centre is a welcomed addition to Parramatta and that it would go some way to meeting the growing demand for Oncology and Infusion services in Sydney’s West.

“The new centre doubles the capacity of the current Private Oncology and Infusion services at Westmead Private Hospital. It will give patients more comfort and space as they deal with what is a very challenging time in their lives,” Cr Chedid said.

“This wonderful new facility is a huge asset for patients and practitioners in Western Sydney. It represents a huge leap toward our target of making Westmead a world class biomedical centre that serves not only Metropolitan Sydney, but also the State and the Country,” Cr Chedid said.

Cr Chedid said that as Australia’s population ages and the demand for health care grows, Westmead will become increasingly vital to meeting the nation’s demands for health care.

“Already, Westmead treats more than a million patients each year and its 16,000-strong work force is set to double within the next 20 years.

“As a member of the Westmead Alliance, Council is calling on the government to invest now to provide the precinct with vital transport links and infrastructure it needs to service the people of Sydney,” Cr Chedid said.

The Westmead Alliance brings together major health and research institutions in Westmead and Parramatta City Council to advocate for infrastructure investment in Westmead.

The Alliance includes Parramatta City Council, the Western Sydney Local Health District, The Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network, Westmead Millennium Institute, Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI), Westmead Private Hospital and the University of Sydney.
