Patients who require a day-stay infusion, blood transfusion or antineoplastic therapy will attend the Day Infusion Unit located on Ground Level of the Hospital.

Our wards offers bright, well-appointed private patient rooms with ensuites, a quiet area for patients and visitors.

Holmesglen Private Hospital is committed to providing sensible, caring and appropriate support at all times during the cancer journey including palliative care support.

The diagnosis of cancer can be a life changing event for individuals and their families. It can be a frightening and stressful experience.

At Holmesglen Private Hospital our mission is to treat the ‘whole’ person, ensuring that all required support is provided during this time.

People are required to deal with many challenges not only related to coming to terms with their diagnosis, treatment and potential side effects, but they also have to cope with the impact placed upon their emotional, psychological and social wellbeing.

In most cases how well an individual adjusts to and copes with their diagnosis, is dependent upon how well they are supported through this process.

We understand this, so our dedicated team of trained professionals are available to support you and your family by providing a wide range of free Cancer Support Services.

This includes patient groups, social work, counselling, newsletters and pastoral care.

Our dedicated team is available to support patients, family and friends, providing a wide range of Cancer Support Services to all in the southern suburbs of Melbourne.

For cancer support services contact the Nurse Unit Manager on 9567 9180.
