Nurse Navigator Program

Getting a diagnosis of cancer is devastating enough. But as anyone who has tackled cancer knows, it’s just the beginning. Nurse navigators guide patients along the path to recovery by helping them make informed medical decisions, assisting with scheduling multiple doctors' appointments and tests, making sure they stay on track with their treatment plans, running interference on insurance issues and offering emotional support. All this is at no additional charge to patients.
