A Gold Coast health service voted best place to work

RADIATION Oncology Queensland has been named the Business Review Weekly’s top 25 Great Places to Work in Australia.

ROQ provides access to lifesaving treatment to more than 500 Gold Coast public cancer patients since the service commenced in January.

ROQ CEO Mark Middleton said he is enormously proud of his team of Radiation Oncologists and Therapists, Medical Physicists, Nursing and Administrative staff across three sites at Toowoomba, Cairns and Gold Coast with Springfield opening soon.


“I would like to thank all ROQ team members for the exceptional patient care, tireless professional development and passionate innovation that they continually strive for,” Mr Middleton said.

“Our organisation has flourished due to the quality of our people, their leadership and commitment to improving cancer care. This is really a celebration of all of their achievements.

“When our patients come to us they often are going through a difficult time – a happy and engaged care giving team can make a difference.”

Executive Director of People, Systems and Performance, Damian Green said ROQ staff should be proud to work for an organisation that is recognised for its commitment to providing a better workplace.

“This is a wonderful achievement for ROQ and we commend them for providing an A class service to cancer patients and staff,” Mr Green said.

“Gold Coast Health is proud to partner with an organisation that values their staff.”
