Lifehouse at RPA will be a world-class cancer treatment and research facility providing integrated care and support services to public and private patients, building on the services provided at the Royal Prince Alfred/Sydney University campus at Camperdown, Sydney. The facility will integrate clinical care, research, education and integrative therapies, creating opportunities for innovative discoveries, compassionate holistic care and better outcomes for patients, their families and carers. Worldwide, integrated cancer centres are recognised as the ideal delivery model for optimal cancer care providing the best possible outcomes for today support for survivors, and hope and advances for the future through research and education. Cancer kills 43,000 Australians each year, the single largest cause of premature death. Earlier diagnosis and better treatments have already saved thousands of lives but have also created a need for support and assistance for survivors of cancer. Lifehouse at RPA is an independent not-for-profit public benevolent institution. Income will be re-invested to continually innovate and improve services and focus on the delivery of cancer care and research for the benefit of all Australians and the education of the next generation of clinicians and researchers.
