Delta Hospital's Grand Mesa Oncology Now Offers Innovative Online Program to Cancer Survivors


Grand Mesa Oncology and Infusion Center is now offering their patients an innovative online cancer survivorship program called iTHRIVE that creates personalized lifestyle-based wellness plans to help survivors heal from treatments, reduce risk of recurrence, and feel better after their cancer diagnosis. This program is another value added benefit to Grand Mesa Oncology patients who already have access to complimentary classes and therapies including yoga, art therapy, music therapy and massage therapy.

"We are thrilled to partner with Dr. Goldberg and her committed and talented staff," said Karolyn Gazella, iTHRIVE co-founder and CEO. "iTHRIVE is a perfect complement to what they are already doing to help cancer survivors thrive in the community."

iTHRIVE is a software company out of Boulder, CO that is teaming up with Delta County Memorial Hospital's Grand Mesa Oncology to offer a comprehensive cancer survivorship program to oncology patients. The program uses a survey taken by the cancer survivor to create action plans in five key component areas: diet, movement, environment, rejuvenation and spirit.

Jason Cleckler, DCMH CEO says, "The addition of the iTHRIVE Program for Grand Mesa Oncology's patients is a reflection of the dedication of that department, and the entire DCMH system, to providing the highest quality of care to patients, which includes providing the best resources."

Beginning in March, Grand Mesa Oncology started introducing this new patient resource free of charge. The Survivorship program has been made possible because of donations from the community to the DCMH Foundation. To make a donation that will support this program, you can donate at dcmhfoundation.org and add a special instruction indicating the donation is for Grand Mesa Oncology. Grand Mesa Oncology is overcome by the support shown from patients and the community thus far.

"A person is a cancer survivor the day they are diagnosed and with the iTHRIVE Plan, cancer survivors can work on their wellness online when they have the time," said Helen Goldberg, MD, medical oncologist and integrative oncologist. "It's engaging and easy-to-use and we are thrilled to offer this new service to the cancer survivors in our community."
