THE final three tenders vying for the opportunity to build and run the Peter’s Project south-west cancer centre were announced yesterday.
Premier Denis Napthine made the announcement with Deputy Prime Minister, Warren Truss and Wannon MP, Dan Tehan in attendance.
“The cancer care centre will provide greater access to cancer treatment services for patients in the Warrnambool area and surrounding regions,” Dr Napthine said.
The three successful respondents shortlisted by the State Government after a call for expressions of interest are Barwon Health, Epworth Healthcare and GenesisCare.
“We recognise the benefits of investing in state-of-the-art cancer treatment technologies and dedicated facilities, and radiotherapy is a critical clinical intervention,” Dr Napthine said.
