Stawell Austin Radiation Oncology Service (SAROS)
The combined Austin Health and Stawell Regional Health service uses the latest superficial x-ray therapy to treat skin cancer and other non-cancerous skin conditions, and can save patients the need to go through surgery. Cancerous or damaged skin cells are more sensitive to radiation and are destroyed by the treatment which is painless, non-invasive and provided at no cost to public patients.
The SAROS service expands the range of cancer services available at Stawell Regional Health and help us to make the best possible care available to patients living in the Grampians and surrounding regions.
Patients in our community are provided with access to radiation therapy in their local area – this service can add to improving their health outcomes by making it makes it much easier to access this type of treatment.

The unit is the first public unit in regional Victoria and as a public health service there is no charge for the specialist appointment or the treatment if you have a Medicare card.

Building B, Stawell Regional Health
27-29 Sloane Street, Stawell VIC 3380
