Nov 21, 2016
Professor Arlene Chan, Hollywood Private Hospital (Hollywood) breast oncologist and founding member and Director of Breast Cancer Research Centre-WA (BCRC-WA), has been named WA Australian of the Year.
The prestigious award recognises and celebrates the achievements of outstanding Australians making extraordinary contributions to society.
Established in 2008, BCRC-WA is a not for profit clinical research centre and the busiest breast cancer clinical trials unit in Australia. The organisation is recognised throughout Australia and internationally for its contribution to the survival of breast cancer patients.
In April 2016, BCRC-WA relocated from the Mount Hospital to its new home at Hollywood.
Hollywood Chief Executive Officer, Peter Mott, said “Hollywood is privileged to have Professor Chan’s vital and world-class research being conducted onsite. We are committed to supporting research that helps to advance the provision of medical care and improved health outcomes for the community.”
BCRC-WA’s presence at Hollywood has further strengthened the hospital’s extensive range of breast cancer support and treatment services.
