Navitas Opens Cancer Rehabilitation Center in Denver in Conjunction With Presbyterian / St. Luke's Medical Center

DENVER, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Navitas Cancer Rehabilitation Centers of America, Inc. (Navitas), the market leader in providing integrated and comprehensive cancer rehabilitation services, is pleased to announce that its Denver, CO location is now located on the campus of Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center. Navitas has entered into a management services agreement with Presbyterian/St. Luke's to provide its proprietary cancer rehabilitation program within the Presbyterian/St. Luke's outpatient rehabilitation center. With the move, patients will now have a centralized, convenient location for all aspects of their treatment plan. Also, more patients will have access to Navitas' innovative services -- an integrated set of rehabilitation services designed specifically for cancer patients and survivors - because of the connection with Presbyterian/St. Luke's and the greater HealthONE healthcare system in metropolitan Denver.

Navitas' services include physical therapy, prescriptive exercise, lymphedema therapy, and psychological services, among others, all provided within a single location and in a highly personalized and integrated manner. The outpatient cancer rehabilitation program officially expanded its services on October 15, 2007 inside the Outpatient Rehab & Sports Medicine Facility located in Presbyterian/St. Luke's Professional Plaza West #6100.

"We want to help our patients function better during their cancer treatment as well as live a better quality of life," says Allen Harrison, Chief Operating Officer at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center. "This new program is important to helping our patients tolerate their cancer treatment and have productive lives for many years post-treatment."

"Our management services relationship with Presbyterian/St. Luke's represents the first such contract for Navitas," said Paul Barnes, Ph.D., President and CEO for Navitas. "It is clear that hospitals and oncology practices are very interested in this type of formal partnership which introduces the unique expertise of Navitas in cancer rehabilitation from a clinical and business perspective. We are honored to work with a leader in the Denver healthcare community like Presbyterian/St. Luke's."
