Nurse Navigator Program
One Partner Through Your Journey
Our Nurse Navigator Program is designed to be a resource for those in the midst of a cancer diagnosis. Navigators provide physical, emotional and spiritual support to provide a more focused and comfortable journey through cancer treatment.
The Nurse Navigator Program serves patients diagnosed with lung cancer and cancer of the head and neck. As the program expands, Nurse Navigator support will be available to our patients diagnosed with other cancers.
Following a cancer diagnosis, Navigators meet with patients and their loved ones to ensure they understand the diagnosis and the doctor's treatment recommendations. This allows our patients to make thoughtful and informed decisions about their health care.
Our Nurse Navigator Program removes barriers, helping patients move through the health care system more quickly. Navigators are available to help coordinate appointments specific to each individual patient's needs. By encouraging prompt treatment following a cancer diagnosis, the Navigator Program increases patient success rates.
