Your Team for Innovative & Comprehensive Cancer Care

Indian River County residents need not travel far for world class cancer care. State-of-the-art care is available and expanding at the Scully-Welsh Cancer Center at Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital.

Under the leadership of Medical Director Eleni Anastasia Tousimis, MD, MBA, FACS, the center is focused on treating the whole patient, not just the disease. While offering the most advanced treatments and care from renowned cancer experts, the center has significantly added to and enhanced existing
programs to improve patients’ quality of life during and after treatment. “Our goal is to cure disease and, at the same time, improve the quality of life of our patients as much as possible,” says Dr. Tousimis.

In August, the center began offering a nutritional support food cart on which dietitian selected nutritious, purposeful snacks such as kombucha,
protein shakes, oatmeal, and ginger chews are offered to patients undergoing treatment. The cart makes rounds three to four times daily in the 13 semiprivate infusion bays.

An additional cart containing art supplies, which gives patients and their loved ones supplies to paint rocks, make cards and more, also makes rounds at the cancer center. Pet therapy is offered, along with complimentary wigs, head scarves and educational programs. “Most Mondays our beautiful piano is being played by our music volunteer,” Taylor says. “The sound just lifts everyone’s spirits.”
