Inpatient Oncology and Palliative Care Team
As part of our comprehensive cancer treatment program, Rex offers inpatient oncology services and a palliative care team to make sure our patients have all of the accommodations they need close to home.
Patients requiring hospitalization receive specialized care in the 21-bed Oncology Unit on the fifth floor of Rex Hospital. Here, patients are cared for by experienced oncology nurses. Patients and their families also have access to all of the educational and support services available at Rex Cancer Center.
The Palliative Care team includes nurses, social workers, certified nursing assistants, chaplains and volunteers working together with physicians to provide comfort and support for patients and their family members.
