Designated Oncology Unit
For patients who need hospitalization, the Cancer Center at Overlake has a designated inpatient medical oncology unit, the Lang Oncology Unit, offering a relaxed, comfortable, home-like environment. The unit is staffed by specially trained oncology nurses who are experienced in treating the special needs of cancer patients. In addition, oncologic surgery patients are cared for by specially trained surgical nurses on the surgical unit.
The waiting room in the Lang Oncology Unit is a peaceful retreat for patients and their families. This room can be used by patients as a quiet space away from patient rooms to relax, reflect or consult privately with physicians.
