We Are Defying the Odds Every Day
Good Samaritan’s cancer program is among an elite group of programs
nationwide accredited by the
American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. We offer comprehensive care and a range of state-of-the-art services,
which means patients who are diagnosed with cancer can receive all of
their treatment near family and friends from physicians and medical professionals
who know and care about them.
Our interdisciplinary approach includes experts who have received the most
advanced training in cancer care, ranging from screening and diagnosis
to treatment and end-of-life comfort when needed. Our services include:
We recognize that the journey through cancer treatment can be overwhelming,
and we offer an oncology nurse navigator to help you along the way. Financial
Services, Social Services, Pastoral Care, Registered Dietitians, Physical
Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy are among other services
that are available.
In addition, we offer educational/support groups for cancer patients and
their families and caregivers. We sponsor the American Cancer Society
“Look Good, Feel Better” group and also have our own group
called Cancer Connection. Cancer Connection meets at a variety of times
and days.. Topics change every meeting, there is no charge to attend and
you do not need to register ahead of time. Anyone affected by cancer,
family, friends, and even those who are not a patient of Good Samaritan
are welcome to attend. For those who are interested in this group, want
to inquire about meeting dates, or have questions, please call Lesley
Hofmann at 812-885-3990.
The Cancer Pavilion’s environment enhances our program and facilitates
a holistic approach to treatment. We feature a resource area with wireless
Internet for easy access to information and research. In addition, an
on-site boutique carries wigs, turbans and other items useful for coping
with the aesthetic effects of cancer.
