Committed to helping you reach optimal recovery.

The Union Hospital Cancer program is committed to offering the best available survivorship services. This is why we have implemented a Cancer Rehabilitation Program that includes staff trained in the latest oncology rehab care and implementing research-based protocols that have been proven to help cancer survivors return to the highest level of function and independence possible while improving the overall quality of life.

 

Cancer Rehabilitation Program

A cancer diagnosis can be traumatic, and so can life-saving treatments. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery can interfere with daily function and well-being. Survivors are commonly plagued with symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, insomnia, memory loss, fear, anxiety and depression. The Union Hospital Cancer Rehabilitation Program offers important rehabilitation services to help survivors heal from the side-effects of treatments. 

In the Union Hospital Cancer Rehabilitation Program, we look at the "big picture" to evaluate your needs and address the full spectrum of post-cancer care. In addition to focusing on your health conditions and symptoms, we take into consideration diet, sleep issues, existing pain, endurance, strength, exercise habits and emotional outlook. All of these factors have an important effect on physical healing. 

Our rehabilitation care is offered to patients by a knowledgeable and sensitive medical staff, specially trained to treat survivors of all forms of cancer including physicians, physical therapists, lymphedema specialist, mental health professionals, registered dieticians and nutritionists.

After undergoing a thorough evaluation by a physician, a team of medical specialists is assigned to you based on your individual needs. Your healthcare team will provide expert medical guidance, training and support. Your team will create a personalized rehabilitation plan with the goals of increasing strength and energy, alleviating pain, improving physical functioning, achieving emotional balance and boosting the immune system.

A medical referral from your physician is required. Call 812-238-7210 for more information.
