Comprehensive Treatment for All Phases of Cancer CareOne in two Americans will develop cancer during their lifetime. While cancer treatment dramatically increases survivability, many patients suffer from debilitating side effects during their treatment. They may be left with permanent, often devastating, physical impairments. These impairments can lead to an increased risk of other illnesses or a lower quality of life.
Rehabilitation can substantially improve quality of life. Cancer survivors who develop symptoms such as the following will benefit from a focused rehabilitative program that addresses these and other problems during any phase of cancer therapy:
We offer skilled professionals who recognize the need to address these disabling impairments associated with cancer treatment. We work to help restore cancer survivors’ optimum level of physical health and maximize enjoyment for life.
“I am so grateful to the St.Vincent oncology rehabilitation program. I feel so healthy now, and my cancer is in remission. I owe much of my strong recovery to them.”—a recent St.Vincent patient
Our licensed clinicians offer a wide range of services for the cancer survivor including:
“Thanks to [my therapist’s] help and support, I was in the hospital for only three weeks after my stem cell transplant. That was about half the expected recovery time.” –a recent St.Vincent patient
These services address all phases of cancer care. They are tailored to meet patients’ needs before, during and after medical cancer treatment.
"I am honored that I am able to work with cancer fighters and be a part of their recovery.” –St.Vincent therapist
