Supportive Care for Cancer Patients

Our services are designed to help patients manage their care, restore their sense of well-being and overcome the challenges of living with cancer.

Led by an oncology-trained patient navigator, you have access to services, education and support from the moment an abnormality is detected all the way to survivorship.

Patient Navigation

One of your first contacts will be with a patient navigator, an oncology-trained specialist. Your navigator will serve as your personal guide throughout the cancer journey, linking you to services, education and support you need. Your navigator will help you understand medical terms, diagnoses, procedures and all treatment modalities; provide information for informed decision-making about treatment options; and assist with arranging next steps with the rest of your care team.

Integrative Care

Integrative care is a physician-directed, evidence-based program that focuses on healing the whole person. Combined with a traditional cancer care plan, integrative care may help to manage symptoms, promote optimal health and well-being, and improve the effect of your traditional cancer care plan.
