Our Mission & Core Values
At Sari Center, our mission is to integrate complementary therapies with medical treatment to enhance the quality of life for all persons affected by cancer through a multidisciplinary approach that strengthens the mind, body, and spirit.
The Sari Center provides the highest quality therapies, education, and services through an interdisciplinary team dedicated to improving patient outcomes and quality of life. We are a center of excellence specializing in integrative approaches to cancer care. Our core values include being integrative, compassionate, open, and dedicated.
The Sari Asher Center for Integrative Cancer Care (Sari Center) opened its doors in August 2008. For our first 5 years of service we were located on the 8th floor of the Victor Farris Building adjacent to Good Samaritan Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida, overlooking the intracoastal waterway and providing a safe and peaceful space for patients and families. The Center moved in January 2014 to two new locations, our main offices on PGA Blvd in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida donated by the Florida Cancer Specialists and inside the Good Samaritan Medical Center's Comprehensive Breast Center, donated by the Tenet Corporation, in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The Sari Center is named after Sari Asher, an extraordinary woman with a remarkable spirit for life, who fought multiple myeloma with grace and courage. Sari sought integrative approaches to complement her standard medical treatments. This allowed her to live years longer with high dose steroid treatment. Her doctors and family believe it added to the quantity and quality of her life. Integrative therapies are being used in cancer centers throughout the country to optimize healing. Our goal is to provide these therapies for our local cancer community.
