The mission at the Oasis of Hope is to provide integrative and complementary cancer treatments to improve the quality of the physical, mental, and spiritual lives of our patients.
Hope through Research
The physicians at Oasis of Hope never stop researching every promising advance in cancer treatment, whether it comes from the realm of conventional or alternative medicine. This research is not confined to the mechanisms of the disease and functioning of the body. Scientific findings more and more prove the vital role that the social, mental, emotional and, most of all, spiritual aspects of our lives play both in developing disease and overcoming it.
Hope through Education
Almost five decades of experience have shown us that the more patients understand about the therapies they are receiving at Oasis of Hope, the better they respond to them. To this end, we offer regular lectures, classes in nutrition and healthy living techniques, and question-and-answer sessions. Patients and their families are encouraged to always ask questions of our medical and research staff: any questions about any aspect of their disease or their treatment that they are unclear about, or simply want to better understand.
Hope through Care
We sometimes describe the Total Care Approach at Oasis of Hope as "wrap-around care." By this we mean two things. First, that every patient is a unique person with his or her own needs. Therefore, their treatment program needs to be customized to their individual needs. Second, that their treatment cannot be separated from how they are treated, as whole people and spiritual beings.
One patient described his experience here as "being constantly enveloped in a big hug." This is the Oasis of Hope experience we strive for, and that we feel is unmatched in all the world in making a positive impact on the health and well being of the people who put their trust in us.
