Cancer Survivor Rehabilitation

We are committed to bringing you the highest level of survivorship services

At CHI Health Good Samaritan, we are committed to offering the best available survivorship services at every stage of cancer survival. One such service is our Cancer Rehab Program which helps cancer survivors heal optimally and function at their highest potential.

We offer comprehensive care that is covered by health insurance

Cancer Rehab, which helps survivors heal from the side-effects of cancer and cancer treatments, is generally reimbursable by health insurance providers.

We are committed to helping you reach optimal recovery

A cancer diagnosis can be traumatic, and so can life-saving treatments. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery can harm health and cause serious medical problems that interfere with daily function and well-being. Survivors can find themselves plagued with symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, numbness and tingling, insomnia, memory loss, fear, anxiety and depression. Cancer Rehab offers important physical and psychological rehabilitation so survivors can recuperate more quickly, recover more completely and enjoy the best quality of life.  

Whether you’re newly diagnosed or long finished with treatment, we can help

We serve all survivors in need, whether they have yet to begin treatment, are actively receiving treatment, have finished treatment, or are experiencing late or unresolved issues from long-ago treatment. Our program is open to everyone, no matter the cancer type, cancer stage, prognosis or phase of recovery. 

Our health care team awaits you

Our rehabilitation care, based on conventional medicine, is provided by a knowledgeable and sensitive staff. They are medical experts at the top of their fields and comprise a variety of disciplines:

  • oncology certified nurses
  • physical therapists
  • occupational therapists
  • lymphedema (swelling) specialists
  • speech and swallowing therapists
  • registered dieticians and nutritionists
  • mental health professionals 

We look at the 'big picture' when evaluating your needs 

Our rehab team addresses the full spectrum of post-cancer care. In addition to focusing on health conditions and symptoms, we consider a multitude of factors that play a role in the healing process.

We offer you a personalized rehab plan with an interdisciplinary approach

Our rehab team creates a personalized rehab plan for each patient. Goals often include increasing strength and energy, alleviating pain, improving physical functioning, achieving emotional balance and boosting the immune system. Each team member provides his or her expert medical guidance, training, encouragement and support, for the duration of the program. 

If you have problems now that you didn't have before your cancer diagnosis, Cancer Rehab can help.
