Alta Bates Summit physicians and staff recognize that it’s as important for our patients to care for their emotional health as well as their physical health.
In fact, recent research suggests that patients who attend support groups and discuss their experiences with others may have better clinical outcomes than those who did not participate in support groups during the course of their treatment. With this in mind, we offer a variety of cancer education and support programs to complement our clinical care services.
Visit the Support section of our website to find a class or group that fits with your schedule.
The Medical Center also provides Spiritual Care Services. Hospital chaplains seek to embody compassionate, confidential support for people of all faiths and backgrounds who come to Alta Bates Summit Medical Center. Chaplains (of a variety of denominations and beliefs) are available to all our patients, guests, and employees to provide spiritual/religious services and to support a person's spiritual and religious needs during times of distress or hardship.
Visit the Chaplaincy Services Department web page to learn more about the services they provide and how to contact a hospital chaplain.
