Dignified architecture and successful delivery of a positive healing environment

The Shoalhaven Cancer Care Centre (SCCC) provides essential cancer services for the growing South Coast population, assisting through every stage of the patient's journey. Recognized for the dignified architecture and successful delivery of a positive healing environment, SCCC is a landmark facility for the Shoalhaven region.

SCCC offers an integrated, multidisciplinary cancer centre with increased access to medical oncology, radiation therapy, allied health and support services. It is designed to evoke a more casual, relaxed ambience and connect with the picturesque woodland landscape surrounds.

The mixed use of concrete, timber and glass reinforces the connection with the outdoor bushland.
