Poon Oncology Ward

The Poon Oncology and Palliative Care Ward is located on Level 6 of the Main Hospital Building. The Ward offers mostly private ensuite rooms, including a relaxing indoor atrium which is reserved for our oncology patients, their families and visitors.

As a special treat, we also offer Pet Therapy to interested patients with Max, the beautiful labrador retriever visiting us weekly.

Specialist Oncology and Palliative Care Staff

Our experienced staff provide specialist oncology and palliative care nursing service for patients requiring day stay or inpatient admission. Our caring team also provides supportive care for end stage of illness; however, our aim is to return the patient to the familiar surroundings of home with the support they need to cope with their condition.

Our team includes Nurses, Doctors, Case Managers and Allied Health Professionals such as Physiotherapists and Social Workers. These staff liaise with other Hospital departments ensuring that the patient has the support required whilst in Hospital and after discharge. These departments include:

  • Nutrition and Dietetics
  • Chaplains
  • Cancer Support / Jacaranda Lodge
  • Lymphoedema Specialists
  • Radiotherapy
  • Pharmacy


The Case Manager and/or Social Worker can also access community support services at home such as home nursing, home palliative care, rehabilitation specialists or hospice care.
