We Help People Do What Matters Most

Cancer disrupts all areas of life, physically and mentally.

Research shows that cancer rehabilitation services can help improve strength, function and emotional health.1-3 This enables people to get back to life – family, friendships, work and their community. Yet, only a small percentage of those impacted receive the support they need.

That’s where we come in.

ReVital is a groundbreaking rehabilitation program that empowers patients and survivors to achieve their goals and get back to what matters most.

Our mission is to make cancer rehab the standard of care so everyone impacted by cancer has access to rehab services

ReVital certified therapists are trained to understand the unique challenges people with cancer face. Our therapists strive to help individuals prepare for and recover from cancer and its treatments. That is achieved through physical and occupational therapy along with speech-language therapy.

Targeted cancer rehabilitation services can help reduce fatigue, pain, stiffness, swelling, numbness and cognitive decline. A range of cancer organizations endorse cancer rehabilitation as part of comprehensive, high quality cancer care. Those organizations include The National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine), the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, the Commission on Cancer, the Association of Community Cancer Centers, the American Cancer Society and the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

ReVital was developed by Select Medical, a nationally renowned and community-based provider of outpatient physical therapy and rehabilitation. Our family of brands is widely known and respected throughout the country. The ReVital program is currently offered in locations nationwide and continues to grow. If ReVital services aren’t yet available in your area, please contact us.

ReVital and our cancer care partners nationwide are working to bring our mission to life by leading and continuously innovating to enhance patient access, improve clinical outcomes, reduce system costs and support clinician well-being.

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to live well beyond cancer.

As a survivor of cancer myself for close to 40 years, the idea of not just surviving, but thriving, and having a life you can look forward to after cancer is really the opportunity. I’m committed to making rehabilitation services like ReVital the standard of care for anyone affected by cancer. — David Chernow, President and Chief Executive Officer, Select Medical.
