Cancer Survivorship

There are millions of cancer survivors in the United States, and estimates from the National Institutes of Health show that number is expected to rise significantly over the next 20 years.

At St. Elizabeth Healthcare, we understand that your life changes when you face a cancer diagnosis. We’re committed to providing cancer care that recognizes and meets all your healthcare needs well into survivorship and beyond.

Our multidisciplinary team identifies your individual needs and develops a personalized plan to help improve your quality of life.

Survivorship services at St. Elizabeth are offered in our state-of-the-art Cancer Center. Survivorship focuses on several key areas, including:

  • Lifestyle changes like tobacco cessation, work rehabilitation and nutrition.
  • Physical activity such as fitness education, yoga and tai chi.

  • Recovery services that promote healing and offer support, including financial or grief counseling and family care.

  • Rehabilitation services like cognitive training and physical, occupational and speech therapy.

  • Sensory therapies like massage, healing touch and aromatherapy.

  • Stress-management strategies like support groups and art, music and pet therapy.

  • Surveillance of your health status and needs.

Community Partnerships

St. Elizabeth collaborates with several nonprofit organizations to offer survivorship services for you and your loved ones.

We partner with the American Cancer Society to provide services at our Patient and Family Resource Center. Volunteers who are often cancer survivors themselves direct you to the most up-to-date information about your illness. They can put you in touch with resources available to protect your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being.

Cancer Family Care and Cancer Support Community help us offer comprehensive support services. These include individual and family counseling and support groups at the doTERRA Center for Integrative Oncology, located in the St. Elizabeth Cancer Center.
