This video highlights the NRH Oncology Rehabilitation Program, which works very closely with Washington Hospital Center’s prestigious Washington Cancer Institute, helps cancer patients realize their full potential in life every day. Dr. Curtis Whitehair, NRH Associate Director for Regional Physiatry, explains how the Oncology Rehabilitation Program allows patients to make decisions about what they want to do with the time they have left in some cases.
Adding Life to Years ®, NRH's credo, sums up exactly what the Oncology Rehabilitation Program strives to achieve for every patient. Dr. Whitehair explains, "I look past the cancer and look at [the patient] as a whole person." This program hopes to extend the quality of life for each patient and which is truly the focal point for cancer rehabilitation patients.
