Cancer isn’t just a medical condition. It’s also a life-changing journey. From the moment of diagnosis, we are with you, offering expert medical care, understanding, and support in a soothing, healing environment that is close to home.
Our oncology program is designed specifically around your individual needs. A visiting oncologist and our oncology-certified nurses develop personalized treatment plans for our patients. We provide outpatient chemotherapy and help you coordinate radiology and lab tests, dietary needs, financial concerns, outside services, home care assistance, and follow-up plans. We also provide Integrative Oncology and survivorship support to care for you as a whole person.
As defined by the Society for Integrative Oncology:
Integrative oncology is a patient-centered, evidence-informed field of cancer care that utilizes mind and body practices, natural products, and/or lifestyle modifications from different traditions alongside conventional cancer treatments. Integrative oncology aims to optimize health, quality of life, and clinical outcomes across the cancer care continuum and to empower people to prevent cancer and become active participants before, during, and beyond cancer treatment.
Cancer survivorship programs focus on living well during and after treatment. Survivorship is not simply about monitoring for recurrent or new cancer, but about adopting a healthy lifestyle to combat the side effects of treatment, decrease cancer progression, and combat other chronic diseases. A survivorship care plan is a record of your cancer and treatment history, as well as any checkups or follow-up tests you need in the future, a list possible long-term effects of your treatments, and ideas for staying healthy. At WWH, our survivorship program includes support from a Lifestyle Medicine certified physician to assist you in achieving your best health.
