We are committed to bringing you the highest level of survivorship services.
- 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 Brattleboro Memorial Hospital we are committed to offering the best available survivorship services. This is why we have implemented the STAR Program® that includes training our staff in the latest oncology rehab care and implementing research based protocols that have been proven to help cancer survivors optimally heal and function.
We offer comprehensive care that is covered by 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 our patients with the most comprehensive rehabilitation care available and all of our services are reimbursable by health insurance providers. Having access to world-class follow up care, without added medical costs, will allow survivors to regain their health and get their lives back on track.
