The Loddon Mallee Integrated Cancer Service (LMICS) was established in 2004 by the Department of Human Services as one of the nine ICS across the state.

LMICS is based at Bendigo Health as they are the host agency. In addition, there are also LMICS team members based in Mildura, Swan Hill and Echuca.

LMICS is undertaking its role by consulting and collaborating with regional health partners and consumers. The goals of service improvement are being guided by LMICS Strategic Plan that articulates a program to improve coordination and integration of services through care that is multidisciplinary, supportive, coordinated and responsive to the needs of the Loddon Mallee community.
