Oncology services introduced for Rotorua community

Southern Cross' hospital in Rotorua has partnered with private oncologists, including a team of radiation oncologists from the Kathleen Kilgour Centre in Tauranga and specialist nurses to provide medical and radiation oncology services.

This is the first wholly-owned hospital within the Southern Cross network to offer a full oncology service, in partnership with allied health professionals.

The medical oncology clinics, chemotherapy and immune therapy will be provided from the hospital. Radiotherapy clinics and treatment will initially be provided at the Kathleen Kilgour Centre in Tauranga, with the clinics (only) moving to Southern Cross Hospital Rotorua in 2017.
