The Queen of the Valley Hospital and its Synergy Medical Fitness Center provide a 12-week Cancer Wellness Program to all cancer patients in the Napa, CA region, regardless of where they are being treated or if they have insurance. Any person who lives outside of the Napa Valley, but receives treatment at Queen of the Valley Medical Center is also able to participate. Admission only requires a physician’s referral. Anyone with a physical or functional deficit as a result of cancer, who is undergoing or who has recently completed cancer treatment is eligible to participate. The program includes components from both The Queen of the Valley Hospital and its Synergy Medical Fitness Center, which Active Wellness manages for the hospital.
