In recent years, there has been much talk about creating survivorship as a distinct phase of cancer care and providing each patient with a survivorship care plan. At Orange Regional Medical Center we are committed to offering the best available survivorship services. This is why we have implemented the (STAR) Program® (Survivorship and Rehab). Our staff have been trained and certified in oncology rehab care to help cancer survivors regain the best quality of life possible. Our team implements research based protocols that have been proven to help cancer survivors optimally heal and function.
We offer comprehensive rehabilitation care that is covered by most health insurance.
We are uniquely qualified to offer premium oncology rehabilitation services to cancer survivors undergoing treatment or living with its aftermath. Our program has been created to help survivors physically and emotionally heal from the side-effects of treatments. We provide you with the most comprehensive rehabilitation care available and all of our services are reimbursable by most health insurance providers. Having access to comprehensive care, without added medical costs, will allow you to focus and regain your health and get your life back on track.
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 your health and cause serious medical problems that interfere with daily function and well-being. Survivors are commonly plagued with symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, insomnia, memory loss, fear, anxiety and depression. Orange Regional's Cancer Rehabilitation Program offers important physical and psychological rehabilitation to you for a quick and complete recovery after diagnosis and treatment. Feeling well and being able to resume normal day-to-day activities is essential to enjoying a good quality of life for you and your family.
Whether you’re newly diagnosed or have completed treatment, we can help.
We serve all survivors in need, whether beginning treatment, finished with treatment or experiencing late effects or unresolved issues from long-ago treatment. Our program is open to everyone no matter the prognosis, cancer stage or phase of recovery. You may be a newly diagnosed patient wanting wanting to increase your strength and endurance and prevent future medical problems. You may be living with cancer as a chronic disease and may need help managing treatment-related conditions. Or, you are cured or in remission and may want to enroll in our program with the goal of boosting your immune system so you can heal as well as possible.
Our highly trained medical staff awaits you.
Our rehabilitation care, based on conventional medicine, is offered to patients by a knowledgeable and sensitive medical staff, specially trained to treat survivors of all forms of cancer. They are medical experts at the top of their fields and comprise a variety of disciplines:
- Physical therapists
- Occupational therapists
- Speech and swallowing therapists
- Mental health professionals
When evaluating your needs we look at the “big picture.”
Rather than using a “problem-oriented” approach in tackling each health issue as it arises, we address the full spectrum of post-cancer care. When evaluating you, in addition to focusing on your conditions and symptoms, we take into consideration your: diet, sleep issues, existing pain, endurance, strength, exercise habits and emotional outlook. We take these factors into account knowing the importance theyhave on your physical healing.
We offer you a custom rehab plan and a team of specialists.
