We realize that cancer affects more than the physical self. That's why we take a holistic approach to cancer care - treating mind, body and spirit.
We offer a number of programs that provide psychological and social support for cancer patients and their families. We've developed a number of support groups and services including a Mastectomy Patient Education Task Force that helps women deal with breast removal before and after surgery.
In addition, many patients participate in programs of the American Cancer Society, such as "Look Good...Feel Better," which helps women receiving cancer treatment with wigs and makeup.
Several support groups are also available through Robinson Visiting Nurse and Hospice, including an annual retreat for women, a cancer grief support group, a weekend camp for grieving children and support for families during the holidays.
Robinson Memorial Hospital also has a free, public Community Health Library that can help you research any recent diagnosis or find information about wellness and prevention.
For more information on the cancer support programs we have, contact the Health Education Center at (330) 297-2576. To find a doctor, please call our physician referral line at (330) 678-8801.
The cancer program at Robinson Memorial Hospital is accredited by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.
