Inpatient Oncology Services

Our 26-bed inpatient oncology unit cares for medical and surgical oncology patients and is staffed with nurses trained in oncology care and chemotherapy administration. The unit educator is certified by the oncology nursing society to assist with educational needs of both staff and patients. Other professionals available to patients are a dietician, pain management nurse practitioner and a wound/ostomy/continence specialist. Suburban Hospital's program is unique in that social workers address the individual needs of our patients. The hospital social worker coordinates discharge planning needs while the clinical oncology social workers provide emotional support, counseling and referrals to cancer program outpatient support services.
