2017 Dalton recognition Oncology Unit
Cancer is still a formidable disease, affecting half of all men and one-third of all women.

Today, compassionate and safe care is provided to nearly 1,200 patients with cancer who are admitted to the NCH William and Susan Dalton Oncology Unit each year. The NCH Oncology Program allows Collier County residents to receive the very best in cancer care close to home.

NCH has made special improvements to the William and Susan Dalton Oncology Unit at the NCH Baker Hospital Downtown to provide a more holistic, family-centered approach to care for patients with cancer and their families.

Many patients with cancer often spend 30 to 60 days on the unit for their medical care. Now, there is a comforting, welcoming feel on the unit which features contemporary, warm colors and materials. Each patient room was specially designed to reduce anxiety, allowing patients with cancer to feel more in control of their environment and connected with others. Features include ambient lighting, soothing music, tranquil scenery, internet access, a variety of entertainment options and customized temperature controls. The holistic approach to care is providing a supportive environment that encourages healing.
