​​Integrative medicine programs for cancer patients

Integrative medicine is care for a person's physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental health. Integrative medicine programs help people regain and maintain the best health possible for their specific condition and needs.

At The Christ Hospital Cancer Center, our patients and their families find comfort with the help of our free wellness programs. We take care of the whole person throughout cancer treatment and survivorship.  

Our holistic approach goes beyond healing your body to easing your stress so you can reach a higher level of health and wellness.
