About Mercy Cancer Care

Specialist oncology services and support.

Covid-19: Dunedin is currently at Orange

The safety, health and wellbeing of our patients, staff and specialists are of utmost importance to us. Under the Covid-19 Protection Framework (traffic light system) everyone coming to Mercy Hospital is required to;

  • wear a mask
  • practice good hand hygiene

To help us support patient care patients will be asked their Covid-19 vaccination status. You can choose not to provide this information. 

Under Orange and Red, patients are restricted to one visitor at any one time, and patient’s visitors will be asked Covid screening questions by Reception staff.

Mercy Cancer Care was established in 2011 to provide Otago and Southland residents choice when facing a cancer diagnosis. We offer oncology consultations and a full range of systemic treatment options (including those not available in the public sector) from a purpose built unit in central Dunedin.

Our patients and their families/whanau benefit from minimal wait times and exceptional care delivered in a private and welcoming environment.


Mercy Cancer Care offers specialist medical oncology consultations, where an oncologist will discuss your diagnosis and all your treatment options, including those not available within the public sector. Your chemotherapy and / or immunotherapy will be administered by our caring team in our chemotherapy suite, overlooking the town belt.

Integrated care with dietitians, physiotherapists, massage therapists, counsellors, and radiation specialists is assured. Ultrasound, X-ray, CT and MRI scans can be performed onsite at Pacific Radiology. We liaise closely with Christchurch Hospital for PET scans when required.
