You would also care for women admitted for benign GYN diagnoses and on occasion, you would care for women with complications from their fertility treatments. The majority of our admissions come to the unit through the PACU, so the staff cares for a lot of post-surgical patients.

For people undergoing surgery as part of their gender transition plan, Weinberg 4B takes care of the female-to-male population having female pelvic organs removed. You may give chemotherapy and care for patients undergoing radiation therapy. Very often, the staff cares for women with GYN cancer facing the end of their life.
