Stronger Against Cancer.

Memorial Cancer Institute: Supporting Patients Every Step of the Way

As one of the largest cancer centers in the state of Florida, Memorial Cancer Institute treats more than 4,300 new cancer patients every year, providing them with innovative technology and a team of more than 300 medical and support professionals who are dedicated to offering world-class cancer care.

In our Oncology Nursing Unit, our nurses work closely with one another to ensure our patients receive the best care possible. Patient statuses can change quickly in Oncology, so nurses must remain observant and ready to jump into action if the need arises. The Memorial Cancer Institute also caters to the needs of our patients and their families by providing a host of services such as massage therapy, support groups, genetic counseling and testing, survivorship plans and more.

Meanwhile, in Oncology Pharmacy, we ensure our patient’s safety by keeping our patient to pharmacist ratio at or above the national standard. This ensures our patients receive the attention they deserve, and our pharmacists’ workload remains manageable. Additionally, we’re investing in new technologies and methodologies that help keep our pharmacist and technicians safe — allowing us to meet USP 800 compliance.

At Memorial Cancer Institute we truly are committed to being Stronger Against Cancer, and supporting our patients and our employees every step of the way. Discover how working with #teamMHSflorida can elevate your career by visiting our career page now.

Interdisciplinary collaboration is key

Interdisciplinary collaboration and communication is integral to our success at Memorial Healthcare System. This is part of what makes us a leader here in South Florida, as well as nationally. Our team of 13,000+ works as one with a singular mission to care for our patients, their families and each other.

A recent example of true collaboration can be found at Memorial Hospital Pembroke. We knew that the community needed a higher level of patient care and made the decision to transform our Telemetry Unit into a Progressive Care Unit (PCU) for the step-down treatment of patients leaving the ICU. In order to prepare our Nurses for these higher acuity patients, the Respiratory Care team provided clinical guidance and training on pulmonary care procedures that would be necessary for recovery in the PCU.

In fact, across our entire system, Respiratory Therapists and Critical Care RNs work side by side to deliver the best in patient- and family-centered care. Interdisciplinary rounds are essential to creating a plan of care that is personalized for each individual. Patient education is equally important and RTs are experts in that area, helping those with chronic pulmonary disease (and other conditions) understand how to manage medications, lifestyle and other factors for optimal lung health.

I am proud to be part of the Memorial team and think you will be too. Take the first step to joining us by visiting our all-new careers site and learning more about what it’s like to work here.
