Mater Hospital Cancer Care The Patricia Ritchie Centre
The Patricia Ritchie Centre for Cancer Care & Research
The Patricia Ritchie Centre is a 12-chair private cancer and ambulatory care service within the grounds of the Mater Hospital. It is staffed by a dedicated professional group of nurses, with a wealth of expertise.
This team works closely with the patient’s oncologists and haematologists to provide personalised care and support to achieve the desired goals.
- Infusions for oncological and haematological malignancies (e.g. outpatient chemotherapy, immunotherapy, non-cytotoxic cancer treatment)
- Non-malignant haematology (e.g. blood transfusions, iron infusions)
- Scalp cooling to help prevent hair loss during chemotherapy treatment
- Clinical trials for breast cancer and melanoma
- Medical infusions to treat gastroenterology conditions
- Venesection (e.g. for hemochromatosis)
Our team understand that it is a challenging time for our patients and we have a warm supportive and collaborative approach to your care. The centre is designed for the comfort and safety of patients who need medical procedures that require observation for some time, but not an overnight stay.
