Inpatient and outpatient services are offered at Union Hospital and through our association with Christiana Care’s Helen F. Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute & Radiation Oncologists, PA (for radiation therapy).
Inpatient and outpatient cancer program services are staffed with nurses who have specialized training and certification in oncology. In addition, all nurses in the outpatient infusion unit are certified in chemotherapy, biotherapy and oncology.
A full-time, dedicated social worker helps patients and their families with questions about community resources, insurance coverage, support groups and more.
