The $52m Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre was built to bring the best cancer treatment and care to the border of New South Wales and Victoria. Constructed on the grounds of an existing hospital, it consolidated disparate cancer services under one roof, creating a single destination for diagnosis, support, education, research and treatment. It also eliminated the need for people to travel long distances for such facilities.
WSP provided structural and civil engineering services for the 7,700m2 building. It comprises 30 inpatient beds set around two internal courtyards, a chemotherapy ward with space for 30 patients, two paediatric treatment chairs, three radiotherapy bunkers, a brachytherapy service, 17 medical and allied health consulting rooms, a pharmacy and a wellness centre. There is also a bridge linking the new centre to the old hospital.
