The Cancer Center at Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center provides specialized care for our cancer patients. The Hematology/Oncology Unit is a 12-bed unit. All rooms are single occupancy.

The care provided is multidisciplinary, bringing together rehabilitative services, dietary, pharmacy, social work and all other disciplines necessary for high quality, current cancer care. Pain management is an important aspect of care on this unit and is provided according to the patient’s individual needs.

Specialized Nursing 

Certified nurses provide the coordination of care for patients with cancer and consistently utilize the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) standards in providing care. They are encouraged to become certified in Oncology Nursing by the Oncology Nursing Certification Corporation (ONCC). We currently have nine Certified Oncology Nurses (OCN) on staff.

The nursing staff participates in the American Cancer Society’s community education for colon, breast and lung cancer. Several of the certified nurses participate in the cancer support group.

Infusion Center

Our six-bay Outpatient Infusion Center provides a quiet pleasant setting for outpatient oncology infusions. We provide a variety of outpatient infusions including blood products, chemotherapy, antibiotic and other infusion therapies.

Patients can relax in comfortable recliner chairs and listen to music or watch individual DVD players. Learn more about the Infusion Center.
