Support Services

When a man is diagnosed with prostate cancer, it means more than having a physical condition; it is an emotional experience, too. We understand that fighting cancer can take every ounce of a patient’s physical strength and mental health. And we know that treatment is about much more than battling the disease; it’s about addressing the other challenges that arise along the way.

Our physicians, nurses and comprehensive team of health-care professionals are committed to providing you and your family with the comfort, resources and support needed while receiving treatment and managing your recovery. We ensure that your care is seamless, as we help you to navigate the treatment process – whether it’s at one of our hospitals, one of our outpatient cancer centers, or your home.

Our services include:

  • Psychological and/or psychiatric counseling to help handle emotions that arise during and after the course of treatment.
  • Social work services to help you locate services, programs and other resources in your community, such as support groups and financial assistance programs.
