Setting a new benchmark in the treatment of cancer and establishing a truly integrated facility this centre is located within the RPA Hospital Precinct. Winner of five World Architecture awards, Lifehouse is an innovative Integrated Cancer Centre that has been completed on the campus of the existing Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney.

This 45,000-square-metre premier Cancer Centre includes both cancer treatment and patient care facilities, representing a unique incorporation of private services onto a public tertiary campus and is the only fully integrated Comprehensive Cancer Care Centre in Australia. It combines diagnosis, treatment, research, education as well as emotional support to improve the lives of people affected by the disease. This project achieved an excellent design outcome for an innovative clinical care model, and redefined what cancer care in Australia is about.
