Patient Services

Dealing with a cancer diagnosis can be difficult, but our staff is standing by, ready to assist you and your family. We provide educational resources and written materials on subjects such as coping skills, information on your cancer, and prescribed treatments, including chemotherapy and radiation.  We also have guides on topics like nutrition, exercise and mindful meditation. Our counselors can refer you to educational classes and other relevant hospital and community-based programs, and, if needed, to individual counseling and support groups. We can locate and teach you to how to locate assistance, including resources for financial aid, medication needs, home health care, insurance questions, transportation and other concerns.

Counseling and Support Groups

Oncology social workers and facilitators provide counseling and other services to help reduce stress for patients, families and caregivers through all phases of cancer. Counselors can help patients cope and better understand their cancer diagnosis and prescribed treatment. Services available include:

  • Individual counseling – inpatient and outpatient:  Individual, family and couples counseling is available to cancer patients and their families at the Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource Center, as well as to inpatients at the hospital.  To find out more about these services or to speak with a counselor, contact Leslie Rogers at 410-720-8517, or email her at lrogers@hcgh.org.
  • Ongoing support groups and programs: The Center offers ongoing structured support groups as well as fellowship groups for patients and survivors. Call the Center at 410-740-5858 for more information.
