Patient Resources

Your care doesn’t end when you walk out of our office. We aim to provide you and your family with comprehensive patient resources and support. Learn more about several of our programs and initiatives to support your walk through gynecologic cancer treatment, recovery and survivorship.

Social Services

Social services, including a Transportation Program
, are available through the WMCHealth Network. We have a dedicated oncology social worker for patients receiving treatment through the infusion center. An oncology social worker can follow-up on patients throughout surveillance, assisting with everything from transportation to recovery and survivorship or hospice care and home planning.

Adolescent and Young Adult Program

A cancer diagnosis can be challenging for patients of any age, especially adolescent and young adult patients who may be navigating many other complex issues, such as education, career, relationships, sexuality, fertility and parenting young children.

Our Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Program provides coordinated care and support for women between the ages of 15 and 39. Areas of focus may include:

  • Physical well-being
  • Emotional well-being
  • Psychological well-being
  • Fertility Sexuality

Talk to your provider to learn more about age-appropriate resources and referrals for counseling.

Clinical Research for GYN Cancer Treatment

All physicians in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology and Robotic Surgery are registered investigators with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and actively participate in clinical trials. Additionally, we have our own institutional research protocols. Your WMCHealth physician will be happy to help you research, identify and pursue clinical trials that could potentially benefit you.

The Division of Gynecologic Oncology and Robotic Surgery is an academic medical program. Our GYN-ONC faculty are research mentors for OB-GYN residents and mentors for the research internship for medical students. Education and innovation are core parts of our identity.

Survivorship Clinic

Survivorship begins at diagnosis and continues for a lifetime. Our Gynecologic Oncology Survivorship Clinic provides support for patients by preventing, detecting, and treating issues that may arise as a result of cancer diagnosis or treatment. Your Survivorship Clinic care team may include a gynecologic oncologist, physician assistant, and social worker trained in the care of cancer survivors.

Care in the Survivorship Clinic may include:

  • The monitoring and management of physical and psychological effects
  • Health education regarding diagnosis, treatment and side effects
  • Referrals to other resources
  • Support for social, educational and vocational needs
  • Assistance with financial and insurance issues

Caregiver Center

The Caregiver Center at Westchester Medical Center provides resources for the caregivers who may face great stress, hardship, and exhaustion while caring for a friend or family member receiving treatment in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology. If you are caring for a patient at Westchester Medical Center, we encourage you to visit the Caregiver Center for rest, relaxation and support. Learn more.

HPV Vaccination Program

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted virus that can cause several types of cancer, including cervical cancer. Vaccination is a highly effective method for preventing cancer caused by HPV. You can schedule a three-injection series HPV vaccination through our office via dedicated nurse. Learn more and schedule your appointment at our Hawthorne, Kingston, Pomona or Suffern location.

Grateful Patient Program

Through relationships with grateful patient programs we may be able to connect patients and families with financial and volunteer resources. Talk to your care team or learn more by viewing our Patient Resources.

Supportive and Palliative Care

The WMCHealth Network offers hospital-based and outpatient Palliative Care services. When advised, palliative care begins at diagnosis and continues throughout treatment, extending into hospice and end-of-life care. Our partners in Palliative Care include a board certified palliative care physician, palliative care nurse, registered dietitians, pastoral care, social workers, pharmacists, and case managers.
