The Cancer Support Center recognizes the importance of reaching newly diagnosed cancer patients. The Center has made building hospital relationships a priority, extending support to those in need at the beginning of their cancer experience. Currently, The Center has partnerships with Advocate South Suburban Hospital, The University of Chicago Comprehensive Cancer Center at Silver Cross Hospital, The University of Chicago Orland Park, The University of Chicago Ingalls Flossmoor, Amita Health Cancer Institute, and Riverside Health
Working in collaboration with hospital oncology teams, The Cancer Support Center provides valuable programming and services at our partnering hospital sites. The goal of the partnership is to offer psycho social supports to cancer patients before, during, and after cancer treatment. These supplemental services are offered to patients and their caregivers to ensure that cancer patients are connected to clinical supportive services throughout their cancer journey, both while at the medical facility receiving treatment as well as afterwards.
