Ribbon cutting ceremony held for Methodist Cancer Care Rehabilitation Center opening.

Methodist Hospital has opened the doors to the Methodist Cancer Care Rehabilitation Center, adding to the hospital’s already robust cancer-care services. The necessity for cancer rehabilitation services has increased steadily as cancer incidence, survival, and mean patient age increase. Despite the prevalence of cancer-related disablement, sixty-seven percent of oncology patients could benefit from rehabilitation therapy, though only two percent of patients seek the care. The Methodist Cancer Care Rehabilitation Center is expanding access to care for patients battling cancer and develops personalized care plans to help reduce or prevent the severity of side effects in all phases of cancer treatment.

The center’s therapists are certified in cancer rehabilitation and maintain a deep understanding of the physical, spiritual and emotional impact cancer has on the body. Individual therapy plans are tailored around each patient’s diagnosis and personal goals. Conditions treated include balance problems, joint and muscle pain, loss of bladder control, mobility loss, swelling and more.

Located on the campus of Methodist Hospital in the TNI building, this 6,700-square-foot specialized care center offers eight private exam rooms and a large rehabilitation gym fully equipped with cardio machines, weight training equipment, balance equipment, high-low exercise tables, and parallel bars. Additionally, advanced technologies allow the skilled team to further conduct therapy including a biothesiometer to measure sensory deficits, spirometry to measure lung function and a bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS) device designed to measure body compensation, such as muscle mass and limb volumes.

“Patients become cancer survivors from the moment of their diagnosis. We know that diagnosis and treatment of cancer takes a physical toll, and having a treatment center dedicated to multiple modalities of therapy is an important step to ensuring the best outcomes for patients with cancer in San Antonio and South Texas,” commented Dr. Melissa Crawley, medical oncologist.

The Methodist Cancer Care Rehabilitation Center is located at 4410 Medical Drive, suite 440 and is operated in partnership with Forté Rehabilitation and Wellness Center. For more information, please call (210) 575-9740 or visit
