Icon Cancer Centre opens in Fengcheng

On 25th February 2021, a fourth Icon Cancer Centre opened in China at Fenghuang Hospital in Fengcheng. The state-of-the-art centre marks a milestone in the group’s maturity in the region and another step towards providing the best possible care closer to home for millions of Chinese across the region.

The new Icon Cancer Centre in Fengcheng, Liaoning province is equipped with a Varian Medical Systems TrueBeam linear accelerator, which has the capability to deliver the latest in radiation therapy techniques, including HyperArc technology – advanced radiation therapy delivering precision stereotactic radiosurgery for multiple brain metastases. The centre will be the first in the region to offer this cutting-edge technology helping to advance healthcare in the community and improve quality of life and outcomes for patients living with advanced secondary cancers.

Alongside the latest in radiation therapy, the centre will also include a PET-CT providing a comprehensive approach to cancer care including screening, diagnosis and imaging. This PET/CT will service patients within Fenghuang hospital and surrounding regions, providing convenience and continuity of care. The addition of a PET-CT will have significant clinical benefits for early cancer detection, increased clarity of imaging for management and monitoring of cancers, as well as carrying out diagnostic procedures for many other conditions and disorders.

“We have been working closely with our partners at Fenghuang Hospital to be able to deliver this welcoming cancer centre equipped with the latest in radiation therapy technology and techniques for the benefit of cancer patients across the region,” said Icon Cancer Centre China CEO, Chelsea Ren.

As with all Icon Cancer Centres across China, the Fengcheng centre has experienced local oncologists and a multidisciplinary team working alongside remote radiation therapy planning and virtual clinical training from the company’s international network. With robust, quality procedures and policies this new centre provides the latest in cancer treatment for a wide range of cancers previously not available in the region.

“We are utilising local expertise, long-standing hospital and government partnerships, technology and international expertise to bring an exceptional level of care to Fengcheng and communities in need. Together we are helping to reduce the growing cancer burden in China and keeping families together by introducing quality cancer care closer to where people live”.

The opening of this centre will continue to elevate the standard of healthcare in the city of Fengcheng and help contribute to the local government’s promotion to establish Fengcheng as a ‘renowned city for health’.

The opening of Icon Cancer Centre in Fengcheng follows China centres in Jiangxian, Chongqing and Qingdao and will continue to make a tangible difference millions of cancer patients.
