For families struggling with a cancer diagnosis, the practical aspects of treatment are often stressful and distracting. The Patient Assistance Center provides support and services at this crucial time.

The Patient Assistance Center (PAC), a satellite office of the Guest Assistance Program (GAP), was established for the unique needs of Rogel Cancer Center patients. The PAC offers immediate access to social work services at the cancer center. Our skilled, licensed social workers are available to alleviate barriers to care for patients and families. Available for patient walk-ins as well, PAC social workers collaborate with clinical social workers to meet the full scope of social work needs for patients and families.

The PAC can assist patients with:

  • Parking and transportation
  • Lodging
  • Prescription costs
  • Medical equipment and supplies
  • Wig bank [pdf]
  • Linkage to community resources
  • Coordination of Medicaid benefits for meals and lodging
  • Referral to Patient Financial Counselors
  • Collaboration with clinical social workers
  • Clearinghouse of community resources and tangible assistance
  • Available for informational in-services/staff education

Contact the Patient Assistance Center by calling 734-232-2208; or visit the center on Level 1 of the Rogel Cancer Center, Room 1139.

The Patient Assistance Center is offered by the Rogel Cancer Center through the Helping Hands Fund. Every donation directed to this fund helps ensure that it can continue its mission to reduce the burdens of cancer for all patients and their families.
