About Us

We are here to help adults experiencing cancer with world class treatment options including radiotherapy treatment, chemotherapy, apheresis unit/stem cell collection, transplant clinic and haematology services.

We have a dedicated cancer inpatient ward located at University Hospital Geelong, and a range of complementary services such as clinical trials and pharmacy at the Andrew Love Cancer Centre (ALCC) allowing us to offer patients the very best treatments available.

The ALCC Wellness Lounge provides unprecedented cancer support for patients and their families in the Geelong region.

Our services are staffed by a highly trained and dedicated team of professionals who provide support to you and your family during your cancer journey, helping you maintain your physical, social, psychological and spiritual wellbeing.

We also have a specialised survivorship team who provide support to you after you have finished your treatment.

The Andrew Love Cancer Centre opened in 1992 and  was the first regional centre in Victoria. It is named after the Reverend Andrew Love, who became the first Presbyterian minister in Geelong in 1840. He was also a trustee and donor to the Geelong Infirmary and Benevolent Asylum, which later became The Geelong Hospital, and is now known as University Hospital Geelong.

In 2017, the Barwon Health Foundation announced that #ProjectLove, it's annual fundraising campaign, had raised enough funds to redevelop the Andrew Love Cancer Centre Chemotherapy Day Ward and Oncology Pharmacy.
