Welcome to Icon Oncology

The right care is
putting the patient
at the centre

Icon Oncology is the leading provider of cancer care services in South Africa. We place our patients in the centre of everything we do. This ensures they receive the right treatment, at the right time and at the right price.

What we do

Radiation Therapy

Icon has 28 accredited radiotherapy facilities with 32 state-of-the-art linear accelerators (linacs) across South Africa, and some partner facilities in Africa.

Caring for our patients in these facilities are nearly 300 expert clinical oncology-focused professionals, dedicated to providing quality, cost-effective care to you.

Chemotherapy

​Icon has 59 affiliated chemotherapy base units in South Africa. 46 of these focus on chemotherapy only, while 13 provide both chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments

We also have 22 satellite units, and 3 haematology units, equipping us to ensure you get the right treatment.

Managed Care

Icon Oncology is the leading value-based and care-driven organisation in South Africa. In an environment of escalating healthcare costs that disadvantage the majority of patients, many cancer patients are still not gaining access to quality cancer treatment fast enough. Our business model puts the patient at the centre of care, reduces wastage and costs and improves outcomes.
