Jane White, Director of Rehabilitation Services at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) at Western Regional Medical Center (Western), graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in English from Felician College in Lodi, New Jersey. She later earned a master’s degree in physical therapy from The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey before going on to earn her doctorate degree in health and science from A.T. Still University in Mesa, Arizona.
White began her career as a physical therapist at an acute care hospital in Cape May Court House, New Jersey. In the years following, White held positions as a staff physical therapist in Ocean City, NJ and as the rehabilitation services director at a post-acute care center. As the rehabilitation services director, White oversaw three rehab departments, recruited and hired employees, and managed the evaluation and development of therapy programs, among other responsibilities.
Over the course of her career, White attended numerous conferences that addressed various issues in rehabilitation therapy. She is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association.
In late 2008, White joined the oncology rehabilitation team at Western. "I made up my mind about joining CTCA even before the job was offered to me!" says White. "When I heard about the Mother Standard® of Care, I knew this is where I was destined to work. As a clinician, I have always embraced an integrative approach to patient care. CTCA truly offers patients a comprehensive approach to cancer treatment, gives them choices, and respects their decisions."
When asked what she likes best about working at CTCA, White explains: "I love the daily collaboration I have with the entire care team and the fact that we are all here under one roof. This makes communication between the various departments and disciplines so easy and response time so fast. If a question or concern comes up during our evaluation or treatments, the doctor is just down the hallway."
White jokingly describes herself as a beach girl struggling to survive in the desert, as she and her husband relocated to Arizona from the Jersey Shore in 2005. In her spare time, White enjoys theatre, cooking, reading and exercise.
