The Elizabeth M. Pfriem SWIM Center for Cancer Care

St. Vincent's Medical Center and the Elizabeth M. Pfriem SWIM Center for Cancer Care offer a wide variety of cancer resources, programs and events for all cancer survivors, or those affected by the disease. You are considered a survivor from the moment you are diagnosed, and no matter your need, we have the resources and caring staff to help you get through this difficult time.


Integrative Survivorship Programs

The Elizabeth M. Pfriem SWIM Center for Cancer Care Integrative Survivorship Program is designed to meet the physical and emotional needs of cancer survivors by preparing individualized, holistic survivorship care, providing you with longevity tools and guidelines that you will rely on for years to come.

Ultimately, our goal is to help manage long-term effects of cancer and reduce the risk of it returning.
