Canopy Cancer Care opens its 6th Clinic - In Rotorua

Nov 6, 2022

New Rotorua Canopy Cancer Care Clinic

It is with great excitement that Canopy Cancer Care opens our 6th clinic, the first private cancer clinic in the Rotorua Lakes region.  This clinic has now opened in Rotorua to ensure cancer patients who live in the Rotorua Lakes area have access to world-class cancer care, delivered locally.

Canopy Rotorua is located at the Southern Cross Rotorua Hospital at 58 Otonga Rd, Springfield.  Southern Cross Hospital have been successfully delivering Oncology services since 2015. 

Patients in the region will now benefit from being part of the larger national Canopy network which includes specialist oncologists, haematologists, clinical nurse specialists, and pharmacists.

While patients will continue to be treated locally by a team they already know to them, they will now also have access to additional multi-disciplinary specialists and cancer drugs. Our core philosophy is to achieve outcomes that matter to the individual patient and their whānau. The partnership we have formed with Southern Cross Hospital Rotorua is instrumental in delivering this goal for local patients.

Dr Prashanth Hari Dass, who has been providing oncology care in the region for a number of years, will now be joined by Dr Alistair Wickham. The nursing team will be led by Richelle Marshall who will be well-known to many of the existing patients and their whānau. Together this team will care for the needs of the growing number of patients in the area.   The Canopy team is committed to offering world-class cancer and healthcare, locally. The opening of our new Rotorua clinic is an important step in delivering on this promise and the team looks forward to being part of the Rotorua Lakes community.
