The Ozanam House Trust

Cancer Network Group Service



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 outpatient 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.

Mon – Fri8:00 AM – 5:00 PM

The Featherston Street site is staffed from 8.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday.
An after hours contact number is available for 24 hour/weekend assistance.

How to access this service

The Oncology Department of the Palmerston North Hospital makes bookings for all patients coming for treatment as outpatients. Patients are notified of this when their appointments are sent to them.


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 utilising motel accommodation so patients do not have to share any facilities. 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 alert level guidelines.
