Patient Navigator Program
Cancer treatment can be complicated and overwhelming for newly diagnosed cancer patients. But now there’s someone to help if you have breast cancer or lung cancer.
The navigation concept is designed to enhance timely treatment and reduce barriers to care. Our nurse navigator provides patients with a number of services that include:
- Guidance through the diagnostic and treatment processes
- Collaboration with your team of providers to mobilize the resources and support needed to streamline your health care appointments
- Consultations with you and your family members to assess medical and emotional needs
- Help in accessing educational and support services
All services can help enhance your care and quality of life during treatment as well as assist your loved ones during this challenging time. Patients and physicians throughout the five-county region we serve have access to these dedicated nurse navigators.
