The vision for the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) is to save lives and improve survival rates among cancer patients through the integration of cancer research, education and patient care in one combined facility.

Led by award-winning architecture studio McBride Charles Ryan, the design of the VCCC reflects the characteristics, aspirations, and cultural identity of the community and is intended to symbolise hope, health and wellbeing for those touched by cancer. The VCCC’s focus on innovation and collaboration is reflected in its architecture where the façades of the building’s disparate activities – in-patient units, same-day medical and allied health (clinical care), research laboratories, and the public realm – are merged into a single continuous form.
