Lunder 9 is a thirty-two-bed adult inpatient acute care medical oncology unit that provides Relationship Based Care. Most of the patients cared for on this unit have a diagnosis of lymphoma, multiple myeloma, sarcoma, or a solid tumor cancer. Patients are cared for throughout the cancer trajectory - from time of diagnosis, treatment and through end of life. Patients admitted to this oncology unit require complex oncology care which includes Phase 1 clinical trials, complex chemotherapy regimens, targeted therapy, radiation therapy, proton therapy and palliative care. The complexities of care provided to our patients also consist of medical management related to their disease or treatment. Pain management, palliative care, emotional and spiritual support, and end of life care are also integral in the care we provide. Integrative complementary therapies, acupuncture, massage, art and music therapy are also available to our patients on the unit. Our goal is to provide compassionate, expert, individualized care to all of our patients and families affected by cancer.
