Supporting a Loved One
No family should have to face cancer alone. That’s why each of our hospitals offers a range of services to support your physical, emotional and spiritual needs surrounding a cancer diagnosis.
Cancer care coordinators
These specialists help coordinate care among providers, explain treatment plans and answer your questions.
Your spiritual health is a critical part of cancer treatment and recovery. Board-certified chaplains and Catholic priests are available 24 hours a day to visit with you or your loved one. Our chaplains can also contact your pastor, priest, rabbi or spiritual adviser. We always respect your spiritual traditions.
Our team can design a diet and supplement plan tailored to your needs.
We can help you find the right wig, skin care product or support group. Just let us know what you need.
