Nov 25, 2017 10:36AM
Lancaster Cancer Center, Ltd. (LCC) has announced the addition of Rebecca Light as the social worker for the practice. LCC recognizes the impact that cancer can have on a patient and on the lives of a patient’s family and friends. Light will be counseling patients regarding the psycho-social aspects of cancer, as well as with their cancer related concerns, including adjusting to diagnosis and treatment, transportation and financial needs, and advance care directives. She will also provide education and guidance on supportive services such as community resources, palliative care, home health and hospice.
“We have long appreciated the value that a social worker brings to the caregiving mission of Lancaster Cancer Center. Our social worker serves as a true patient advocate and ‘force multiplier’ in the battle against cancer by identifying patient needs and facilitating the access to resources not only at LCC, but in the community at large,” says Chief Operating Officer Bob Orzechowski.
Light has a bachelor’s degree with a double major in psychology and sociology from Lebanon Valley College and is currently pursuing her master’s in Social Work from Millersville University. “I am dedicated to helping every patient in any way that I can,” she avows.
LCC is proud to be the longest-running private, independent, community-based oncology/hematology practice in Lancaster County, providing patients with an intimate setting to receive the highest quality, compassionate care the area has to offer.
