The diagnosis of cancer for yourself or your loved one can be a frightening and stressful experience. At Sydney Adventist Hospital our mission is to treat the ‘whole’ person, ensuring that all required support is provided during this challenging time.
The San is renowned for excellence in cancer care services offering a range of treatments, care options and support services for patients and carers. These include specialised diagnostic procedures, multidisciplinary cancer teams, surgery, follow-up treatment options and care from specialist oncology nurses, allied health and medical professionals.
Patients who require a day-stay infusion, blood transfusion or chemotherapy will attend the Poon Day Infusion Centre located on Level 3 of the Clark Tower. If an overnight stay is required, patients may be admitted to the Hospital's Poon Oncology Ward or accommodation can be organised on campus at Jacaranda Lodge. Our Poon Oncology Ward offers bright, well-appointed private patient rooms with ensuites, a quiet room for patients and visitors and features a relaxing indoor atrium and garden which is reserved especially for cancer patients, their families and visitors. Sydney Adventist Hospital is committed to providing sensible, caring and appropriate support at all times during the cancer journey including palliative care support under the patient's usual specialist and/or a palliative care specialist.
The Radiation Oncology Centres offers radiation treatment to both inpatients and outpatients and is located on the hospital grounds.
