The complex nature of cancer rules out any simple approaches. In-depth human compassion coupled with the latest advanced technologies and a depth of expertise unmatched in the area make up the care found at Excela Health.
Outpatient care is coordinated through the Arnold Palmer Pavilion – a joint venture with UPMC that is part of one of the largest integrated networks of cancer physicians and health care specialists in the country. This wide network of researchers and providers not only delivers state of the art care, but is also involved in seeking out new approaches.
Everyone gets involved: the full team of specialists in cancer care, the experts in all related fields. Patients are encouraged to take an active role. A large educational library is available to help patients understand their disease and their treatment options. We also offer a full range of support services, too – symptom and side effect management, support groups, nutrition counseling, social services, and more.
At Excela Health, patient attention is always personal, including human touches such as hand-made radiation robes, help with wigs and hats, and professional counseling regarding breast prostheses and bras. Massage therapy, yoga, and mind-body skills can also play a role. When the patient returns home, our home care team is there to offer needed support and information.
Human compassion, sensitive to each person’s unique needs, plus the highest levels of skills and knowledge in the field join together in Excela cancer care.
