Services & Amenities for Cancer Patients & Families
UPMC Hillman Cancer Center realizes and respects a patient's need for comprehensive care. Our cancer centers believe in care beyond just cancer treatment. It's also about supporting and improving lives. It's about helping people heal physically and emotionally and getting them back to the life and family they love.
Our range of related services are directed towards helping our cancer patients in any way possible.
Our specialists work with on-site dieticians to provide nutrition programs designed for your cancer care plan.
Today it is more important than ever to understand the relationship between nutrition and good health. Learning how to eat in a healthy manner can improve medical problems, provide a sense of well-being, enhance physical activity efforts and promote weight maintenance. Proper diet and nutrition also play a major role in the prevention of many diseases and can help people living with chronic diseases to live longer and healthier lives.
At the Diabetes & Nutrition Care Center, a registered dietitian can help you with your nutritional needs as they relate to specific diseases, sports nutrition, weight loss, pediatric nutrition and more. Initial sessions last up to one hour. Follow-up sessions are 15 to 30 minutes. Some insurances cover these services. Check with your insurance provider for coverage information.
