LB6 Leukemia/BMT Daycare Outpatient Unit
General Information

Facility Overview

The Location

The Leukemia/BMT Daycare Outpatient Unit is located in The Krall Centre, which is on the 6th floor of the Leon Blackmore Pavilion. The unit is often referred to as the Leukemia/BMT Daycare for short.

Blackmore Pavilion can be accessed from the main hospital entrance on West 12th Avenue, from Jim Pattison Pavilion (JPP) or from the ground floor east entrance from the inner courtyard parking lot. Take the elevator in the Blackmore Pavilion to the 6th floor.

The Unit

The Leukemia/BMT Daycare is comprised of 22 treatment rooms where there are chairs, beds or stretchers for patients’ use. Call bells in each room are to be use for urgent requests only. Patients who are able to walk and assist themselves are encouraged to do so.

The Doctors

With the exception of the Clinical Associate doctors, all physicians rotate between the Inpatient Unit and the BMT Daycare Outpatient Unit every 2 to 4 weeks.

In the BMT Daycare Unit, the physician(s) assigned to the unit that month will see you. You will likely see certain physicians more than others. Even though you may not see the same doctor(s) at every visit, rest assured that there will be a Leukemia/BMT Attending doctor and a BMT Fellow or Clinical Associate doctor monitoring your care.

Amenities

  • Televisions with cable are installed in all treatment rooms for your use.
  • There is a library and lounge with books and magazines for your reading pleasure, as well as computers with Internet access.
  • Several washrooms are available on the unit for patient use only. A visitor/public washroom is located across from the elevators in the foyer.
