The inpatient oncology unit is located on the sixth floor of Grand River Hospital’s KW Campus (with access to the cancer centre).
Patients sometimes need to be admitted to the inpatient oncology unit for their cancer treatment or because of the side effects related to their treatment or cancer. The length of stay will depend on the needs of each patient.
The inpatient oncology unit has a team of health care professionals including physicians, specialized oncology nurses, pharmacists, social workers, physical and occupational therapists, CCAC workers, dietitians, a spiritual care provider and clerical support.
Treatment closer to home
Community cancer clinics across the region allow patients to receive some of their care (which may include chemotherapy) closer to home. Find out if there is a location near you.
