Mercy Health partners with OHC (Oncology Hematology Care, Inc.), giving our patients greater access to cancer specialists. The doctors collaborate with each other to offer the best comprehensive care for the patients, using regular cancer conferences to ensure the patient gets all the help she needs without unnecessary duplication. Call 1-800-710-4674 or visit www.ohcare.com to reach OHC.

Providing patient support are nurse navigators, who serve as a continuous point of contact for patients and their families throughout their entire cancer care experience. Nurse navigators help ensure patients are able to keep their appointments, follow their treatment regimen and receive the support services they need to recover and be well.

With a physician referral, patients can visit Mercy Health’s rehabilitation services facilities, where experts provide targeted programs to treat lymphedema and shoulder issues, including a loss of range of motion and pain, resulting from surgery and/or chemotherapy. Treatment options include manual lymph treatment, medical compression bandages and specially designed exercise programs to enhance lymph drainage and restore range of motion in the shoulder. Mercy Health’s outpatient rehabilitation and therapy centers are located throughout Greater Cincinnati. For a list of locations, please visit our Rehabilitation Care section.

Also available to help with lymphedema and shoulder issues are the Mercy Health HealthPlexes, which offer special pool-based exercise classes designed especially for women recovering from breast cancer. These small group classes use gentle aquatic exercises, self-lymphatic drainage massage and deep breathing techniques to restore functional range of motion in arms and shoulders, maintain and enhance muscular strength and endurance, reduce the effects of lymphedema caused by radiation treatment and manage stress to create a better sense of well-being.
