ETMC Tyler offers an inpatient oncology unit on 6 North for the treatment of cancer. The unit consists of 36 new, private rooms to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of its patients and families through a variety of programs and services.
The resource library provides books, pamphlets and other health information. These materials may be checked out for use during hospitalization. In addition, a variety of complimentary brochures and self-help material are available to assist families through the cancer experience.
We also have other activities to keep you busy including a cart with games, music and magazines.
We also offer ongoing support groups to assist you and your families throughout the cancer care. These sessions provide emotional support, strategies for self-care and an opportunity to meet other patients and families with similar challenges. Support group schedules are placed in each room for your review. The ETMC Cancer Institute provides a cancer resource coordinator who facilitates the support groups and is also available on the unit to provide individual emotional support. She may be contacted through the unit’s nursing staff.
