Providence Center for the Healing Arts
The Art and Science of Healing
In August 1999, Providence Hospital in cooperation with the University of Michigan, built a truly unique facility in Novi Michigan that is a model for the future of medicine. The Assarian Cancer Center sets the standard for integrative medicine in the country.
The collaboration between these two hospitals allows patients to access University of Michigan doctors at their community hospitals. The Assarian Cancer Center offers so much more than advanced medicine, as it is home to the Providence Center for the Healing Arts. Deeply rooted in the architecture of this building is a philosophy of wholeness and healing that extends beyond the most advanced medical treatments, into new and old areas of healing.
The Providence Center for the Healing Arts, based on this philosophy of wholeness, offers patients and family members a full spectrum of programs and resources for healing in body, mind and spirit. The Assarian Cancer Center offers a full range of complementary therapies to patients, alongside traditional medicine.

Patient Support Group
Although family and friends are often very supportive through a cancer journey, patients also find it greatly helpful to have support from individuals who truly know the cancer experience. Our support groups are a place to share the emotional journey of cancer, discuss concerns, share information, and provide peer support. If you are in need of emotional support along your cancer journey, and are interested in the camaraderie and peer support of a support group, please contact oncology social work at 248-465-5466.

Look Good...Feel Better
Sponsored by American Cancer Society - Look Good... Feel Better is a free program sponsored by the American Cancer Society in partnership with the National Cosmetology Association which helps women who are currently undergoing cancer treatment cope with appearance-related side effects including hair loss and changes in complexion and fingernails. It is offered in a group setting, with products generously donated by major cosmetic companies and is essentially a fun "make-over" session lead by a licensed cosmetologist. Please contact 248-465-5466 for dates/times and to register for the program.
