Other support services at Union Hospital

Through various annual events, Union Hospital raises money to fund enhancements to our medical services, as well as our patient support programs.

Even with insurance coverage, patients can have high out-of-pocket costs. On a limited basis, we can help our cancer patients with expenses such as:

  • Insurance copayments
  • Utility bills
  • Rent
  • Automobile insurance
  • Medications
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Personal items related to cancer care, such as colostomy supplies
  • Wound dressings
  • Gas cards

The cancer program also maintains a food bank which distributes food to patients as needed.
