At North Star Lodge, teams of talented, caring physicians, physicists, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, therapists, and technicians use state-of-the-art treatment, technology, and research to make treatment for cancer more tolerable and as successful as possible. Treatment outcomes for cancer are growing more hopeful all the time with the development of new therapies and combinations of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
In addition, the understanding that we care for the "whole person", not just a physical body, but a mind and spirit as well and by using complementary medicine techniques and emotional support during and after treatment has brought an opportunity for a tailored program of healing to our medical care for patients.
Cancer happens to an entire family. We appreciate that and attempt to make families feel welcome and part of the treatment process at North Star Lodge. It is part of what we do. We want you to be comfortable in our mountain lodge setting. Enjoy the warm, healing atmosphere, waterfalls, peaceful spaces, and natural surroundings. Visit with others and participate as you like in exercise classes, yoga, journaling, and additional learning opportunities at the lodge. This marvelous treatment center is near your home and compares well to the finest treatment anywhere.
We will carefully coordinate your care with your primary care physician and other providers, community resources, and agencies to make your treatment as seamless as it can be. We start by offering you education about your illness, answering your questions about treatment, providing you with a schedule and a personalized notebook to track your treatment and experience. This is a significant time in your life and we want to help you make it as meaningful as possible.
