Organizing your treatment
Your medical oncologist serves as the manager of your cancer care – evaluating test results, making recommendations, overseeing the development of your treatment plan, administering certain therapies and monitoring your progress. Our medical oncologists work with your primary care provider or referring physician to assure your on-going care.
Cancer Inpatient Unit
Sometimes it’s necessary for cancer patients to be admitted to the hospital for treatment. Our dedicated oncology unit in Abington Memorial Hospital has 27 private rooms and provides a full medical/surgical facility. The unit’s highly skilled staff is specially trained in caring for patients in all phases of cancer treatment. Our certified oncology nurses and certified chemotherapy nurses have advanced education in cancer care and therapies. They also provide information and emotional support. The unit has an “open door” visiting policy, with no restrictions by hour or age.
Cancer Pain Management Team
Pain may be managed with oral analgesics, but other options are available if symptoms persist. Our pain management team uses the latest techniques to alleviate pain. Consultations can be provided during regular visits to the medical oncologist or by calling 855-235-7246. The consultation includes a complete pain assessment and treatment recommendations.
Cancer Rehabilitation Services
Our comprehensive cancer rehabilitation services, including physical therapy and lymphedema program, help patients who are recovering from the effects of cancer and its treatment. For more information, please call 215-481-2160.
