Rehabilitation

Oncology Rehabilitation Services


Cancer and its treatment may cause a variety of conditions ranging from reduced mobility, fatigue and impaired balance to lymphedema, amputation challenges, wounds and swallowing difficulties.

We offer a full spectrum of physical, occupational and speech-language therapy services to maximize our patients’ quality of life from the time of diagnosis through cancer treatment and survivorship. Depending on the cancer type, stage and location, rehabilitation may be needed before, during or after treatment.

Registered nurse and social work case managers are available to help navigate patients and families through treatment when a rehab program may require numerous services from a multi-disciplinary team. Case managers can be reached at 717-544-3287.

Our services are physician directed and require a doctor’s prescription to begin evaluation and treatment.  Click here to meet our therapy team.
