    Einstein is dedicated to providing you with the best possible care before, during and after treatment.

    Our cancer program offers services and support to meet many needs.

    Cancer Rehabilitation - MossRehab

    Your long-term or extensive cancer treatment may cause a variety of physical changes. MossRehab, a nationally recognized rehabilitation hospital, provides the area's only cancer rehabilitation program. MossRehab's program helps you regain strength, overcome pain and return to a high quality of life.

    Nutritional Counseling

    Good nutrition offers extra benefits when you're dealing with cancer. A healthy diet can increase strength and energy, reduce treatment-related side effects, and help you heal and recover as quickly as possible. At Einstein Cancer Center, a Registered Dietician is available to speak with you during your treatment. Call at 215-456-6648 and leave your name and number.

    Mental Health Care

    Your cancer diagnosis and treatment may cause emotional side effects. Feelings of depression and anxiety, in particular, are common in cancer patients. If you experience these, or other mental health problems, you can get psychological or psychiatric counseling at Einstein's Belmont Behavioral Health facility. We are dedicated to helping improve your quality of life. Contact Tiffany Raroha at 215-456-3818 to set up an appointment.

    Palliative Care

    Patients who experience cancer-related pain and other symptoms, either from the disease itself, or from treatment, receive support and comfort through our palliative care service. Our goal is to alleviate the pain, symptoms and stress of serious illness. Care is available for people of any age and at any point in an illness. It can be delivered along with treatments that help fight your cancer. We offer both inpatient and outpatient services.

    Resource Center

    If you are receiving cancer treatment you may want to visit our Resource Center that offers a computer with Internet access, informational literature in English and Spanish, and a lending library of books and videotapes. We invite you to take advantage of this center. It's our way of helping you have the information you need to participate as an active member of the healthcare team and share in important decisions about your care. Call 215-456-3822 for more information.

    Cancer Awareness Program (CAP)

    Einstein's Cancer Awareness and Prevention (CAP) program conducts educational programs and cancer screenings in our underserved communities. The program, which has served more than 12,000 people, enables Einstein to boost cancer awareness in African-American, Latino and Asian neighborhoods that do not otherwise have access to high quality medical care. For this work, the CAP program received the American Cancer Society's Cancer Control Award.

    Look Good, Feel Better(for women only)

    Our free makeover program for women with cancer. Co-sponsored by the American Cancer Society and the American Cosmetology Association, the program teaches women makeup, hair and wig-styling techniques to help them overcome some of the physical changes they experience due to side effects of cancer treatment.

    The program is offered at Einstein Center One, 9880 Bustleton Avenue, Northeast Philadelphia and Einstein Cancer Center, 5501 Old York Road, Philadelphia.
