St.Vincent cares for the whole person—body, mind and spirit—because they interconnected. Our support team of nurses, patient navigators, dietitians, rehabilitation therapists, and pastoral care helps you regain and improve your strength and quality of life.
We provide many avenues of support to meet the needs of the whole person. This approach sets us above and beyond most cancer centers. Our whole person support includes:
