Cancer Center Support Team

 The Alegent Health Cancer Support Team offers assistance to each patient and family dealing with cancer.

Our role begins as soon as a person is diagnosed with cancer. A cancer support services specialist visits with the patient and family to assess needs and concerns. Based on this assessment, the specialist makes arrangements for referrals to other support team members who will share their expertise during the patient's care. The Cancer Support Team also works closely with the patient's physician.

Ultimately, our goal is to deliver enhanced and integrated care to each patient and family.
