Ballarat Cancer Care (BCC) is located in the historic Bailey’s Mansion at St John of God Hospital, offering a unique and special environment for a private oncology practice. Being in close proximity to St John’s and the Ballarat Regional Integrated Cancer Centre (BRICC), facilitates the strong links between the practice and both oncology services.

We aim to create a premier oncology and haematology service for patients with cancer and blood disorders incorporating:

  • A knowledge base and clinical practice based on cutting edge research;
  • A streamlined and personal service for our patients; together with
  • A collaborative and integrated approach to our practice within the community.
