PRISMA HEALTH SYSTEM
"At the Prisma Health System Cancer Institute, we have been active members with the Cancer Support Community (CSC) since 2012. It has been hopefully a mutually beneficially relationship. I only say hopefully in that I hope CSC feels that way about us; there is no question that is our opinion of CSC.
The programs which we have embraced from CSC have provided a value-added benefit to our patients for the last eight years, but have been especially beneficial in this year of the pandemic in which cancer care and support was stressed even more.
CSC pivoted to help all of their members with more on-line programming for both patients and caregivers. They added counselors and help-lines and remained open on weekends. There were also programs for medical health professionals to allay anxiety and fears associated with an unprecedented confluence of events.
The calendar of CSC sponsored events that goes to our patients monthly has helped me and my colleagues feel good that we are taking care of our patients --mind, body and soul."
