Palos Community Hospital and The Cancer Support Center Partner to Expand Cancer Care

Palos Community Hospital and The Cancer Support Center proudly announce an official partnership to meet the needs of cancer survivors and their families. The Center will be providing a Gentle Yoga class every second and fourth Thursday of the month, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m., and a Survivors’ Discussion Group every second and fourth Wednesday of the month, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. Programs begin March 2016 and meet through May 2016; both are offered free of charge to those living with cancer.

“Palos Community Hospital recognizes that survivors’ needs evolve throughout the journey and differ between cancer survivors and their families,” said Palos Community Hospital’s director of Hospital Medicine, Craig Adams, M.D. “In today’s health care environment, Palos desires to treat the whole patient, but it also understands the need for community collaboration to effectively accomplish this goal. By working with The Cancer Support Center, our patients will have access to services, programming and relationships, allowing them to be more empowered and equipped to walk the journey of cancer care and survivorship.”

The goal of the partnership is to offer psycho-social support to patients before, during and after cancer treatment. These supplemental services are offered to patients and their caregivers to ensure that they are connected to clinical supportive services throughout their cancer journey, both while at the medical facility receiving treatment as well as afterwards.

“The Cancer Support Center is thrilled to work with Palos Community Hospital,” said The Cancer Support Center Executive Director, Sue Armato. “This partnership exposes cancer patients to instant support after their diagnosis, minimizing the gap of uncertainties and concerns.” 

The Cancer Support Center provides strength, guidance and support to anyone living with a cancer diagnosis, as well as to their loved ones. Offices are located in Homewood at 2028 Elm Road, and in Mokena at 19657 S. LaGrange Road. The Center is able to offer resources to anyone regardless of financial ability because of the generosity of individuals, businesses and organizations.
