for cancer patients’ undergoing treatment continues
Ozanam House is considered an essential accommodation service and
accommodation for cancer patients will continue. To ensure requirements of physical distance and hygiene are met, Ozanam
House will be utilizing motel accommodation so patients do not have to share
Once confirmation of the start of treatment is received, patients will
be phoned by Ozanam House to explain where they will be staying.
Strong recommendation from Oncology is that patients stay in Palmerston
North for the duration of their treatment, in line with LEVEL 4

Ozanam House Cancer Patient Accommodation
The Ozanam House Trust was established to provide homely accommodation for out of town cancer patients and their caregiver while undergoing radiotherapy treatment at the Regional Cancer Treatment Service, Palmerston North Hospital. Many patients travelling from throughout the lower North Island are treated on an out-patient basis and need accommodation for anything from one day to eight weeks. Being able to stay somewhere with a partner, close friend or relative can make a real difference in that time – and that’s what Ozanam House makes possible
