We exist to improve and extend the lives of men with prostate cancer.
We also lead research to find better ways to diagnose and treat prostate cancer. Our world-class clinical trials offer hope through innovative options for patients.
The centre is possible through the philanthropic support of the Epworth Medical Foundation, honouring the legacy of the great E.J. Whitten.
In Victoria, around 1 in 5 men with prostate cancer will seek diagnosis and treatment at Epworth.
Epworth prostate cancer specialists bring the highest level of skill, compassion and understanding to your care. Our urologists, radiation oncologists and medical oncologists are experts in treating prostate cancer. They work collaboratively to achieve the best outcomes for each patient.
We are proud to play an important role in supporting Victorian families. Our specialists treat a high volume of people with prostate cancer, so our hospital network is finely tuned to your needs.

Having access and support by phone from the Whitten Centre has been invaluable. They are compassionate and caring in the way they explain Rod’s treatment to us. It is not just for Rodney; the support is for me too.”
