Logan Health and the Flathead Valley community offer a variety of services to support your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being during cancer treatment. Below are services to inform and educate. Many of these services require a referral. Please speak with your medical provider about the best options for you and your loved ones.
Symptom Support Clinic
You can arrange an appointment by calling our Symptom Support hotline at (406) 752-8672. These appointments are available Monday thru Friday for cancer patients who are currently on treatment and who experience acute or severe symptoms. Telemedicine visits are available.
The cancer genetic counseling program is designed to help you understand the impact of family history and genetics on the risk for developing cancer. A genetics consultation can help determine if a person, or the family, has an increased risk for developing certain cancers. We offer Genetic Counseling for all cancer types. Please ask your physician if these services are right for you or call Logan Health Genetics & Genomics to learn more at (406) 607-8003.
Home Care & Hospice
When you are ill or recuperating from a medical condition at home, Logan Health Home Care can provide a full range of professional services to support you. Under the direction of your physician, skilled care is given on a regular basis by registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, dietitians, social workers, and home health aides. We provide services in Flathead County, Lake County, and Lincoln County. Call (406) 751-4200 to learn more.
During cancer treatment it is common for people to experience unwanted side effects such as taste changes, constipation, diarrhea, high blood sugar, dry mouth, swallowing difficulties, nausea or vomiting. Medical nutrition therapy can help you reduce side effects and promote a stable weight. Contact Nutrition Services at (406) 751-6728.
Treating cancer through chemotherapy or immunotherapy requires the delivery of the medication intravenously. At the Infusion Center, our job is to help you with your treatments so they may be as trouble-free as possible. Our center uses nationally certified infusion nurses and Oncology Nursing Society-certified chemotherapy/biotherapy nurses who have specialized training in chemotherapy, central line access, and advanced skills in adult and pediatric cardiac life support. Contact Hematology Oncology Infusion Services at (406) 752-8900.
Naturopathic medicine, also called “naturopathy,” is a distinct, comprehensive system of health care that uses the healing power of the body and nature to maintain and restore health. Naturopathic practitioners use safe, natural therapies to support the whole person and to strengthen the body’s ability to heal itself.
Conventional cancer treatments, and cancer itself, can be strenuous on your body. You may find it difficult to deal with side effects like nausea, pain, and fatigue. Naturopathic therapies may help provide relief from these symptoms. When used alongside conventional medical treatments, naturopathic methods may help increase your body’s natural healing power to fight disease. Contact Naturopathic Oncology at (406) 751-7560.
Palliative medicine- also called supportive care or palliative care – focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness. The goal of palliative care is to improve the quality of life for patients and their families with a patient and family-centered approach. Contact Palliative Medicine at (406) 751-6725.
A visit from a hospital chaplain or from your own minister or spiritual care provider can contribute to healing in many ways. Patients can request prayer, the sacraments or perhaps just a conversation with a minister to help deal with recent sickness, injury or death. You can expect a caring, attentive listener who respects your spirituality, faith, beliefs and cultural background, and one who is dedicated to understanding your feelings in time of need. Although we do not offer regular worship services, the hospital chapel is open 24/7 to offer a quiet place for reflection, prayer and meditation.
Cancer Support Services
