Our state-of-the-art Center provides a private environment for women. The staff are sensitive to the medical and emotional needs of women, and stress the importance of regular mammograms for all patients. The Center is accredited by the American College of Radiology.
Helping to mitigate the adverse effects of cancer and aggressive treatments is cancer rehabilitation, an integral piece of the cancer care continuum. The Oncology Department at Sturdy Memorial offers its Cancer Rehabilitation Program, a hospital-wide, multidisciplinary, rehabilitation program that supports patients living with cancer or in remission. It involves services such as physical therapy; occupational therapy, including lymphedema treatments; speech therapy; nutrition; mental health counseling; wellness, pulmonary, and cardiac rehabilitation programs; and social services. These services help improve cancer treatment side effects – including fatigue, malignant and nonmalignant pain, deconditioning, loss of range of motion, reduced physical strength, and lymphedema, which is swelling in the arms or legs due to lymph node removal as a part of cancer treatment – to restore quality of life.
