Compassionate Care and Treatment During and After Your Cancer Diagnosis
The First STAR-Certified Rehabilitation Program in the St. Louis Area

Cancer can be a life-changing diagnosis as treatment can take a great toll on an individual both physically and emotionally. At St. Luke's Hospital, we understand the feelings and emotions that come with a cancer diagnosis and want to help you return to a fulfilling and high-functioning quality of life.

St. Luke's Cancer Rehabilitation Program offers patients compassionate and customized programs that can help minimize or eliminate symptoms such as pain, fatigue, loss of strength, cognitive impairment, sleep difficulties, nutrition problems, depression and anxiety that may come with treatment. This program is appropriate for anyone who has the potential to improve their physical and emotional well-being.

Each member of our rehabilitation staff has specialized training through the STAR Programâ„¢ (Survivorship, Training and Rehab Program) to help patients reach their goals.

STAR training covers essential topics for survivor care, including evaluating and treating cancer survivors for pain, fatigue, de-conditioning and a host of other problems that may be due to the cancer itself or the treatments that patients may have to undergo. STAR-certified staff are also required to keep up on the latest oncology rehabilitation research and clinical care. St. Luke's Hospital Center for Cancer Care is the first facility in the St. Louis area to be certified by the STAR Program. We are proud of this designation as we continue our mission of offering one of the most comprehensive cancer programs in the region.
