Women and men facing a breast cancer diagnosis have hope. Lee Health’s Regional Cancer Center has inpatient services at Gulf Coast Medical Center and Outpatient Services at the Sanctuary.
The Regional Cancer Center joins other top-tier cancer treatment centers in offering complementary therapies and services to cancer care that can reduce anxiety, stress, neuropathy, nausea, insomnia, pain and weight changes. Through the Regional Cancer Center, those in Southwest Florida do not have to leave home and the support of family and friends to receive the world-class care they need and deserve during their fight against cancer.
It takes many specialists and support staff to fight breast cancer. That is why the Regional Cancer Center offers a comprehensive care program, complete with oncologists, nurse navigators, a dietician, genetics counselor and more. The certified and dedicated team designs treatment programs that exceed national survivorship rates through a compassionate and collaborative experience.
As a free service offered by Lee Health, nurse navigators are trained to help reduce stress by guiding patients through their cancer plans, including scans, tests and appointments, tackle transportation and other issues and help with insurance concerns so patients can concentrate on healing.
