Support Groups & Classes

At Orange Regional Medical Center, we believe that the support system we provide to our community and patients is just as important as the clinical care that we provide. This is why we offer several support groups and community educational classes to our patients, who may be experiencing a variety of different hardships or currently undergoing surgery or oncology treatment.
