Queensland Freemasons Blood Cancer Centre (Townsville)
The Queensland Freemasons Blood Cancer Centre is an 18 unit complex built amid landscaped gardens, adjacent to the Townsville Hospital. Within the centre, covered walkways provide easy access to the comfortable two-bedroom and three-bedroom, fully self-contained units.
Eight units are located at ground level with private courtyards, while the remaining ten units are located upstairs with large balconies.
The village is equipped with:
- a children’s playground
- a gym and spa
- an auditorium
- a car park.
Residents have full access to the common room with tea/coffee making facilities, television, library, and board games. The room opens onto a barbeque area.
Due to the proximity of our accommodation centre in Townsville, the hospital provides a buggy service from the centre around the hospital grounds.
Courtesy cars are also available for Townsville centre residents.
Freemasons Blood Cancer Centre is staffed by highly trained health professionals who are available to assist you and your family with any concerns you may have regarding your diagnosis, treatment, and any other issues which you may be feeling anxious about.
