Welcome to Peter Mac

The Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre is Australia’s only public hospital solely dedicated to cancer treatment, research and education.

At Peter Mac we treat more cancer patients each year than any other hospital in Australia and our highly skilled medical, nursing and allied health team is backed by the largest cancer research group in the country.

At the heart of everything we do are our patients, their families and carers. Every day at Peter Mac, teams of researchers investigate cancer at the laboratory bench, in the clinic and at the patient bedside: our perpetual research cycle is unique in cancer in Australia.

Living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis

The Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre is the trusted voice in cancer treatment and care, providing cancer information to assist people with cancer, their families and carers living with and beyond a diagnosis in coping with the physical, emotional and social impacts a cancer diagnosis can bring. Cancer information is developed in partnership with the Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre – a Richard Pratt Legacy and sourced from other trusted organisations and agencies.
