SCGH Comprehensive Cancer Centre 4th February 2019 Birthday CelebrationsAmie Connor
February saw The SCGH Comprehensive Cancer Centre celebrate their 6th Birthday
The Comprehensive Cancer Centre in Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital opened in 2013 and cares for both public and private haematology and oncology cancer patients, as well as for patients suffering various blood disorders.
Clinical Haematologist Dr David Joske spoke warmly about the difference the Cancer Centre has made to patients and their families lives so far. Dr Joske continued to inspire and encourage all members of staff to strive for their best and succeed in making the patient journey even better.
“In the war against cancer, this wonderful building will very much be a part of the front line. This building, and the people in it, will together share some tough times. Sadly, we still can’t cure all cancer. But whether we do or don’t, our patients must still undertake that journey and like Frodo the Ring-bearer, they will need all the friends they can muster. No less than Hippocrates understood this: he said “Cure sometimes, treat often, comfort always”.
