Unit Description

Our Medical/Oncology unit is a 32 bed unit specializing in general medical (no flu or infectious diseases) and surgical cases as well as oncology patients. You can expect a nurse to patient ratio of 5:1 on both day and night shifts as well as C.N.A coverage. Additionally, all of our med/surg units have a Resource RN. Because we work with oncology patients, we prefer you either already have your chemo certification or are willing to obtain it within 6 months. This is very special unit with a dedicated team committed to excellent patient care. Come join us!
