STAR Program

 

In recent years, there has been much talk about creating survivorship as a distinct phase of cancer care and providing each patient with a survivorship care plan.  At Jupiter Medical Center, we are committed to offering the best available survivorship services. This is why we implemented the STAR Program that includes training our staff in the latest oncology rehabilitation care and implementing research-based protocols that have been proven to help cancer survivors optimally heal and function. 

As one of the country’s first STAR Program™ Certified healthcare facilities, we are uniquely qualified to offer premium oncology rehabilitation services to cancer survivors undergoing treatment. Our program has been created to help survivors physically and emotionally heal from the side effects of treatments. We provide our patients with the most comprehensive rehabilitation care available, and all of our services are reimbursable by health insurance providers.

A cancer diagnosis can be traumatic, and so can life-saving treatments. We serve all survivors in need, whether they are beginning treatment, finished with treatment, or experiencing late effects or unresolved issues from long-ago treatment. Our program is open to everyone no matter the prognosis, cancer stage or phase of recovery. Newly diagnosed patients may want to increase their strength and endurance, and prevent future medical problems; survivors living with cancer as a chronic disease may come to us for help managing treatment-related conditions; and individuals who are cured or in remission may enroll in our program with the goal of boosting their immune systems so that they can heal as well as possible. Jupiter Medical Center’s STAR Program offers important physical and psychological rehabilitation to survivors so they can recover more quickly and more completely than they would otherwise. Feeling well and being able to resume normal day-to-day activities is essential to enjoying a good quality of life for survivors and their families.
