Integrated cancer care

Waterfield was engaged to design and implement the facilitation process bringing together the key parties to create and realise the vision of a leading comprehensive cancer centre in Victoria.



A proposition had percolated for a number of years for a comprehensive cancer centre to create a powerful alliance of successful Victorian organisations committed to cancer control.

These included The Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne Health (including The Royal Melbourne Hospital), The University of Melbourne, the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, The Royal Women’s Hospital, The Royal Children’s Hospital, Western Health and St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne. 



Waterfield was engaged as an independent facilitator to design and facilitate a process to bring all parties to an agreement on how to structure and govern this complex entity.


A custom alliance facilitation was developed to ensure all stakeholders were onboard and engaged to efficiently collaborate together for a joint outcome and future success.   


The business case was signed off by the Victorian State Government and successfully joint funded by the State and Federal Governments for $1.0 Billion.


The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre concept, structure and governance model was collectively developed and agreed by all parties. The VCCC is a powerful alliance of ten Victorian organisations committed to cancer control successfully specialising in integrated cancer research and patient care.  

'Waterfield has exceptional skills in harnessing the energy of passionate people to create a pathway to realise their vision.'
