Patient Resources and Support

A cancer diagnosis is challenging — mentally, emotionally and physically. At Providence, we offer a wide range of resources and services to support you through your journey.  


Experience relief from nausea, pain, fatigue, anxiety and stress with acupuncture. Many patients swear by it. 

Cancer counseling

Learn how to cope with the emotional and physical challenges of cancer. Our mental health professionals and licensed social workers are available to help. 

Genetic counseling and testing

Find out whether you are at increased risk for certain cancers or other inherited conditions through genetic testing and a study of your family medical history.  

Cancer rehabilitation

Improve the quality of your life before, during and after cancer treatment. Our rehab therapists are specially trained to help reduce pain, fatigue and swelling and to improve your strength and mobility. 

Cancer research

Patients who volunteer to participate in clinical trials may receive new medicine before it’s available to the general public. Clinical trials help researchers determine whether new treatments are safe and effective. 

Cancer screenings

If you are at high risk for prostate, lungbreast or ovarian cancer, possibly due to genetic issues or a strong family history, Providence offers ongoing screenings and preventive care. 

Integrative cancer care

During cancer treatment, you can combine conventional medical treatments with holistic care to enhance your overall wellness and quality of life. Services include acupuncture, massage, naturopathic medicine, therapeutic yoga and nutrition services. Other complementary therapies include music therapy, aromatherapy, animal therapy, hypnotherapy and meditation.  

Naturopathic oncology

You can use natural therapeutics — diet, nutrition, exercise, vitamin and mineral therapy and other remedies to support your body’s healing abilities. Naturopathy treats the whole person — body, mind and spirit — and includes both modern and traditional methods.  

Oncology lab services 

For your convenience, Providence offers on-site lab services, making it easy for you to have lab work done before or after a visit to your oncologist or infusion suite. 

Pain management services

Our specialists work with your doctors to determine the best ways to treat your pain using a wide variety of injections, nerve blocks and other methods.
