WELCOME TO THE VICTORIAN
COMPREHENSIVE CANCER CENTRE PROJECT
|The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) Project is delivering a new $1 billion facility purpose-built for cancer research, treatment, education and care in the Melbourne suburb of Parkville, Victoria.|
|From mid-2016, the VCCC will provide a new home for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. It will also provide new cancer research and clinical services for Melbourne Health, new research facilities for The University of Melbourne and education facilities for all building partners.|
The development comprises a new 13-storey building bordering Flemington Road, Grattan Street and Elizabeth Street, and construction of four new floors on top of the existing Royal Melbourne Hospital (RMH). The new building and extension to RMH will be linked by covered bridges across Grattan Street, allowing patients, visitors and staff to move between the buildings.
In addition to the new facilities being built, ten world-leading cancer organisations have come together to form the VCCC Alliance to share knowledge and resources and drive the next generation of cancer research, education, treatment and care.
The VCCC Project is jointly funded by the Victorian and Australian governments.
