The doTERRA Center for Integrative Oncology was introduced to the public as part of the October 1 grand opening of the new St. Elizabeth Healthcare Cancer Center.
The space is located on the first floor of the 250,000-square-foot St. Elizabeth Cancer Center and complements the personalized care provided by St. Elizabeth Healthcare by offering a calming space for patients. Services within the facility include counseling and support groups, a demonstration kitchen, patient and family resource center, art and music therapy, massage, acupuncture, meditation and more. While the St. Elizabeth Cancer Center started serving patients October 1, St. Elizabeth’s expects to officially open the dōTERRA Center to patients in January 2021.
“doTERRA is honored to join St. Elizabeth Healthcare in supporting patients undergoing cancer treatment,” said Dr. Russell Osguthorpe, doTERRA chief medical officer. “We continue to learn how important it is to care for the whole person and not just their symptoms or illness. The doTERRA Center for Integrative Oncology will provide tremendous support for patients during their care and along their road to recovery.”
The St. Elizabeth Cancer Center will offer cancer detection, diagnosis and care—all under one roof. With an emphasis on precision medicine and genomic health, screening education and prevention, clinical research and advanced, innovative technology, St. Elizabeth will provide a seamless experience for patients undergoing treatment. St. Elizabeth is also a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, consulting with Mayo Clinic cancer specialists and providing patients access to second opinions at no extra cost.
Dr. Doug Flora, executive medical director of St. Elizabeth Oncology Services, said in a recent St. Elizabeth press release, “As a cancer survivor myself, I know all too well how important it is to have a multidisciplinary approach to care. Our new Cancer Center leverages the best healthcare practices to provide an advanced and personalized experience to our patients. With everything our patients need under one roof, they will spend less time worrying about where their next appointment is and more time on what matters most—healing.”
