The Platinum Medical Centre evolves to offer inpatient oncology care

news

The Platinum Medical Centre may only be three years old but that hasn’t stopped The Wellington Hospital from continuing to develop the centre and adapt it to the needs of our patients.

Over the last couple of months the 3rd floor of The Platinum Medical Centre has undergone a complete refurbishment to become a new inpatient unit for patients undergoing cancer treatment and plastics and reconstructive surgery. Patients will benefit from brand new, spacious rooms supported by the latest technology and a multi-disciplinary nursing staff with oncology experience and specialist training.

The new unit has 15 beds and offers inpatient treatment for newly diagnosed patients, patients post-chemotherapy, 24 hr clinical oncology emergencies, symptom control and pain control for current patients.

Patients are supported by a Specialist Oncology RMO and a team of specialist oncology trained nurses who manage the unit 24/7.

The new unit was designed to help provide an uninterrupted pathway for patients using the Breast Care Unit, the main outpatient consulting rooms and to support the Leaders in Oncology Care facilities on the ground floor.
