Care beyond care. No matter what type of cancer you face, it affects not just your body, but who you are as a person, and the lives of the people closest to you. We are here to help.
The moment you’re diagnosed with cancer, you become a cancer survivor and start healing like one. While your oncology team treats your cancer, your survivorship team gives you a helping hand, guidance and support you need to heal the whole you. Studies have shown that up to 95% of all cancer patients can benefit from survivorship services. At HSHS St. Vincent Hospital Cancer Centers, along with our partner Prevea Health, we’re with you every step of the way.

Financial Counseling & Social Work
Financial counselingOf course, no one plans on a cancer diagnosis, or the lost work time and wages that may result. We believe financial circumstances should never be a barrier to getting exceptional care. Our trusted experts can help you address and manage the costs of care, plus identify outside resources that may be able to assist with the financial impact of your treatment.
Oncology Social WorkA diagnosis of cancer and subsequent cancer treatment can result in a period of adjustment and an increase in stress for patients and their families. Oncology social workers provide counseling and other services which can reduce stress for you and your family.
Cancer Nutrition Services
Physical therapyPhysical therapy is available both during and after treatment. It can undo side effects from treatment and improve your daily life and overall recovery so you’re able to live as fully as possible. Based on individual need, exercise, lymphedema therapy, manual therapy or resistance and strength training, may be incorporated.
Occupational therapyOccupational therapy helps you establish routines and increase your quality of life in many ways. We will help you overcome challenges with everyday activities like eating, dressing and bathing, lymphedema care and more.
Speech therapySome forms of cancer treatment create challenges related to the mouth, including eating, swallowing and speech. Fortunately, most conditions can benefit from expert therapy.
