Siona Health Care Boutique Offers Specialized Products and Convenient Services for Cancer Patients at the University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center at Silver Cross Hospital

New Lenox, IL (2016) — Area cancer patients now have access to an innovative shop called Siona Health Care Boutique at the University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center at Silver Cross Hospital. The Siona Boutique staff collaborates with oncology physicians, surgeons and therapists from the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago at Silver Cross Hospital (RIC) offering specialized products and services conveniently in one location to help aid cancer patients with their physical and emotional healing.

Personalized and Convenient Care

For over twenty years, the Siona Health Care Boutique has specialized in services that lead to a better quality of life and shorter recovery time. These customized services include orthopedic rehabilitation services; lymphedema sleeve fitting treatments with Jovi Pak, arm and leg assist; compression sleeves, gloves and stockings; breast forms; weighted and non-weighted post-mastectomy lingerie garments; wigs and hats; swimwear; surgical camisoles; non-metallic deodorant and other skin care products.

“At Siona Health Care our number one goal is to provide our patients with dependable care, while making them feel as comfortable as possible,” said Siona Bitton, owner of Siona Health Care, Certified Orthotist and Certified Lymphadema Therapist. “Most often a cancer diagnosis leaves the patient feeling confused or overwhelmed, and suddenly faced with shopping for a product and service they may know little or nothing about, and this is where we can help. Our patients’ natural appearance is our goal with every fitting, and our world-class team of certified orthotists and fitters are committed to providing the highest quality of care.”

Advice to Other Patients

“I have been receiving products and services from Siona Health Care since 1997 after my breast cancer surgery. I’m so excited that the new Boutique opened on Sliver Cross Hospital’s New Lenox campus because now it only takes me mere 15-minutes on I-355 to drive to the new location and receive services from the same extremely knowledgeable Siona staff,” said Wilburga DeOcampo, who is a retired nurse and resides in Darien.

DeOcampo recommends any cancer patient who needs these types of services to make an appointment with Siona. “I truly believe, part of the reason why I’ve been in remission for so many years, is due to the unwavering expertise and support that I received from the Siona team. There’s nothing cookie cutter about Siona’s services. They treat each person individually by considering their diagnosis, type of surgery, and body’s reaction to treatments, prior to creating a personalized care plan to follow.”

The Siona Health Care Boutique accepts Medicare and Medicaid and most insurances including Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, Aetna, and Cigna. Verification of patients insurance will be confirmed prior to appointment. To schedule a private consultation Monday or Friday between 12:30 to 4 p.m. at the Siona Health Care Boutique at the University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center at Silver Cross Hospital, call (800) 550-0680.
