Inpatient Service

Inpatient Staff PhotoThe Inpatient Service provides care for our patients who are admitted to the hospital for a variety of reasons. It is a joint service with Gynecologic Medical Oncology, providing cross-coverage for each other's patients. Patients' problems are managed by highly trained nurse practitioners or physician assistants, together with the Phase I Program and Department of Gynecologic Medical Oncology faculty.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality care for the following situations that require an inpatient stay:

  • Management of therapy side effects
  • Management of disease complications and co-morbidities
  • First-in-human studies and other complex or high-risk treatments that require intensive inpatient monitoring
  • Regional therapy:
    • Liver program with Phase I hepatic infusion trials
    • Phase I trials using intraperitoneal therapy in patients with ascites
