- A Perth hospital oncology build has reached a construction milestone
- The development is integrated into the existing hospital
- Facilities are available to all patients, private and public
Perth hospital, St John of God has topped out the oncology facility, a milestone for the $17 million healthcare development.
One of 52 healthcare assets under Centuria Healthcare, an unlisted fund that forms part of the ASX listed Centuria Capital Group (ASX: CNI), the building includes “two radiation bunkers, consulting suites, first and secondary recovery rooms and ground-breaking theranostics and nuclear medicine services including the latest molecular imaging equipment.”
Constructed by Built for GensisCare, the oncology facility will accommodate up to 1,000 cancer patients per year.
It has been a tough ask to get the project this position given the pandemic, but construction still made good progress, said the builder:
Throughout a challenging year, operating amidst a COVID-impacted environment, Built has demonstrated our nimble and responsive capabilities delivering this complex project in just eight months.”

The Perth development is part of $1.7 billion dollars currently under development. Centuria made the news back in mid-March with the acquisition of the old Cotham Private Hospital in Kew, Victoria.
That hospital closed in 2018, and Centuria is set to breathe new life into it as a joint venture with Medibank to create a $64 million private hospital.
