The inpatient Oncology Medical Unit, located in the Acute Care Pavilion, consists of 16 private rooms dedicated to the care of patients experiencing issues related to their cancer diagnosis, treatment and progression. Our interdisciplinary team, including our Oncology Nursing Society-certified nursing staff, provides supportive services for medical and surgical oncology conditions requiring monitoring and restorative care.

Inpatient Care at the Cancer Institute

We employ a patient-centered philosophy of nursing care, providing continuous 24-7 support. Individual care plans are tailored to focus on the needs of each patient and his or her family members. Our multidisciplinary oncology team works seamlessly with our network of Patient and Familysupport services.
