The Cancer and Infusion Center
Our newly-renovated Cancer and Infusion center is located in the Dorothy McCormick Center at Berkeley Medical Center. Or facility allows for patients to see their Oncologist and receive treatment in one convenient location.
Cancer and infusion therapies are administered by highly-trained registered nurses. In order to administer chemotherapy, our nurses are required to maintain the Oncology Nurse Society Chemotherapy/Immunotherapy Certification. Our staff follow standards as set forth by the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the Oncology Nurse Society, and the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention to maintain the highest level of safety for our patient and team members.
Our Cancer and Infusion Center includes:
- 21 treatment chairs, including private and semi-private areas.
- 12 physician exam rooms.
- An onsite pharmacy for quick preparation of chemotherapy and infusions.
- An onsite lab, allowing for rapid results critical to oncology.
- A dedicated, tranquil space for counseling and education.
- Ample waiting room space to accommodate patients and their families.
Some cancer treatment procedures require you to be admitted to the hospital, or you may experience symptoms that cannot be managed at home. If you are admitted to the hospital, another name for this is inpatient.
Our inpatient oncology unit is located on the 6th floor of Berkeley Medical Center. This 8 bed unit is home to a compassionate team of registered nurses and patient care technicians who provide specialized care to oncology and palliative care patients. Inpatient oncology nurses maintain the Oncology Nurse Society Chemotherapy/Immunotherapy Certifications.
