Support Services   -   Support Groups

We may not be able to cure every patient, but we can offer to heal them emotionally and spiritually.     We believe the healing process involves body, mind and spirit and our Patient Advocate is an important part of the team approach to healing the whole person. How we feel emotionally affects how we feel physically and we believe patients who feel cared for and understood tend to heal better.
