Dr. Christine Brezden-MasleyA message from Dr. Brezden-Masley; head of the Division, Hematology/Oncology

Welcome to the Medical Daycare Unit!

The Medical Daycare Unit uses an interprofessional care model, with medical oncologists, nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, and social workers involved in your care. This approach to cancer care ensures that each patient has a variety of cancer specialists and other clinicians to come up with an exact diagnosis and best treatment plan.

In addition, St. Michael’s Hospital prides itself on carrying out the new and innovative research. The Hematology/Oncology division has also seamlessly integrated patient care and research. We are passionate about the development of new approaches to cancer treatment, which may benefit other cancer patients at St. Michael’s Hospital, as well as others around the world.

I hope as you read through this information, you will get a sense of our dedication to providing the best possible care to our patients.
