Cancer Resource Center
Providing Support When You Need It Most

If you or a loved one have recently received a cancer diagnosis, you probably feel overwhelmed – not only by the medical implications, but by fears about how your illness and treatment will affect your marriage, children, family, friendships, job security and self-image.

The Cancer Resource Center at Virginia Hospital Center can help you through these issues at the time of diagnosis, during your treatment and afterwards. We understand that in addition to the physical toll that surgery, radiation and chemotherapy take on the body, there are emotional consequences. Coping with these stresses is an integral part of the healing process and our core mission.

How We Can Help

Focusing on survivorship, the Cancer Resource Center offers a broad range of support services for patients and their families, all of which are free:


  • Programs and classes on clinical topics and complementary therapies
  • The Barbra Marcus Kolton Resource Library, which has books, pamphlets, medical periodicals, a community bulletin board and a user-friendly computer for online searches on oncology topics

Support and Assistance

Professional Staff Consultations

The staff of the Cancer Resource Center work very closely with the physicians and staff throughout Virginia Hospital Center to assist cancer patients with helpful guidance through their journey from diagnosis to survivorship:

  • Individual patient and family counseling
  • Patient navigator
  • Nutrition consultation
  • Cancer screenings
  • Survivorship care planning

Hours of Operation

The Center is open from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm weekdays.
