Meet Our Navigators

Patient navigation is a process by which we proactively guide patients through the health system to coordinate services. As the point of contact for the patient, patient navigation ensures all patients with suspicious findings receive timely diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care to achieve better outcomes.

The Navigator is a clinical expert who works with healthcare providers, financial counselors, and social services to enable the patient to access available resources.

Goals of Patient Navigation:

  • Save lives from cancer
  • Eliminate barriers to care
  • Ensure timely delivery of services
  • Educate and empower patients to take an active role in their care
  • Potential cost savings through improved patient care and results
