Making Things a Bit Easier

Cancer treatment is hard enough without having to make trips to the Emergency Department (ED) due to complications from treatment.

The Oncology Express Unit, located on the 1st floor of the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute, is here to make things a bit easier. It was created especially for cancer patients who may experience problems during cancer treatment that would normally require a trip to the ED.

We offer convenient treatment for a variety of issues, including:

  • Dehydration.
  • Blood transfusions.
  • Breathing issues.
  • Bacterial or viral illnesses.
  • Electrolyte imbalances and transfusions.

The Oncology Express Unit is staffed by a team of oncology clinicians who can help you save time and money by avoiding long lines or unnecessary testing in the ED.

Here’s how it works:

  • If you’re having a problem, such as one of the issues described above, call your oncologist.
  • Your oncologist will then call the Oncology Express Unit to ensure this is the right place for you to get treatment.
  • If the team can treat your problem, your oncologist will give you a referral so you can make an appointment.
  • Hours: Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

The next time you’re feeling ill from your cancer treatment, contact your oncologist and find out if the Oncology Express Unit is right for you.
