Our unit consists of 36 inpatient beds mostly populated by the gynecologic oncology patients. These are women with Ovarian, Cervical, Vaginal, Vulva, & Endometrial malignancies. We typically see these patients when they come in for surgery, either to have their mass removed or a Total Abdominal Hysterectomy. We will also see these patients with recurrent disease or uncontrolled symptoms (pain/nausea). Any empty rooms are typically filled with overflow from the other oncology units, so we see all types of cancer on this unit (including male patients).
