Markey Cancer Center Nursing

The overall mission of the Markey Cancer Center is to develop and implement a comprehensive program of patient care, research, education, and outreach activities focused on the reduction of cancer.

Markey Cancer Center has three inpatient areas that provide 24-hour-per-day patient care and an outpatient facility. 

Blood and marrow transplant unit 

This unit cares for patients with blood cancers such as lymphomas, leukemias, and multiple myelomas. These patients are treated with autologous, allogenic or syngeneic blood and marrow transplants. 

Cancer services on Markey Cancer Center second floor 

Care primarily for patients with gynecological, head and neck, brain, breast and colon cancers and cystic fibrosis. These are patients requiring medical and surgical interventions and chemotherapy and inpatient radiation treatments. 

Cancer services on Markey Cancer Center third floor 

Care primarily for patients with cancers of the brain, lung, breast, colon and some gynecological cancers. The patients are treated with chemotherapy and bio-chemotherapy.

Outpatient services 

Care for patients ranging from age 18 to the very elderly who require chemotherapy and follow-up care. We utilize a multidisciplinary approach to treat lung, breast, genitourinary, gastrointestinal, gynecologic, head/neck cancers and hematologic cancers or disorders.
