Oncology Inpatient Unit

The Oncology Inpatient Unit at Athens Regional is a designated 12-bed unit complemented by a private family room. Nurses, social workers, chaplains and nutritionists work with physicians, patients and family members to provide for physical, psychological and spiritual needs.

The oncology unit serves adult patients with cancer and those being evaluated for cancer. Services include aggressive cancer treatments to end-of-life care.

Qualified and Caring Oncology Team

Our nursing staff offers exceptional training. Nurses complete the Oncology Nurses Society chemotherapy education with our nurse educator, an ONS certified chemotherapy instructor.

The nursing staff also works with representatives from outpatient therapies, the Loran Smith Center for Cancer Support and local physicians who specialize in the treatment of cancer to support patients throughout the continuum of care.
