The Mercy Cancer Care Unit opened in May 2011 to provide the people of the lower South Island with specialist Oncology services. Up until that time the Dunedin Hospitals Oncology Unit was the only source of care and intervention in the lower South. The new Cancer Care Unit is designed to meet the needs of patients across the region and to deliver the highest standards of cancer care, with the latest treatment techniques to create new hope for cancer patients.
Effective cancer management demands a multi-disciplinary approach and the specialist cancer care team is at the heart of the hospital. Our Oncologist will coordinate the program of care and treatment for the patient and this relationship between patient and Oncologist is central to the successful outcome for the patient.
