A cancer diagnosis affects more than your health. It has wide-reaching impacts on many levels, including spiritual, emotional and financial. At St. Vincent Healthcare, we understand that you may have a wide variety of needs and concerns, which is why we’re here to support you and those you care about throughout your experience in every way possible.
The cancer treatment process is one that can be somewhat confusing and even overwhelming. Our specially trained Patient Navigators work closely with you to share information, interpret treatment plans and answer questions about the process for you and your family. They can also help connect you with other resources that may be helpful to you.
As a faith-based organization, St. Vincent Healthcare is devoted to providing spiritual care and support to those we serve. We believe this support encourages hope and fosters both strength and healing. Our spiritual care team is happy to visit with you, offer prayers with you or on your behalf and provide other services as needed.
We recognize cancer care and treatments can result in financial strains on patients and families. Even paying for gasoline to get to and from treatments or finding accommodations if you are coming from out of town can prove challenging. St. Vincent Healthcare has financial assistance options available if you need them, including if you live out of town and need help with transportation or lodging.
If you need an easy way to communicate with family across the state or across the country, St. Vincent Healthcare has a solution for you: CaringBridge. This secure, online service easily allows friends and family to stay in touch and support one another.
When you are affected by a cancer diagnosis, talking with others who are or have been in the same situation is often helpful. St. Vincent Healthcare is pleased to offer support groups for patients and survivors to provide you that opportunity.
St. Vincent Healthcare is dedicated to helping cancer survivors live their lives to the fullest after treatment. Our survivorship coordinator will work closely with your healthcare team to develop a comprehensive, written care summary and personalized follow-up plan. Our goal is to help survivors experience their lives as fully as possible, beyond the initial cancer treatment.
