Nurse Navigators

Diagnosis and treatment of breast, colon/rectal and thoracic cancers usually involves a complex, multi-disciplinary care team.

With that in mind, we offer the services of nurse navigators – advanced practice registered nurses who offer individualized assistance to make the treatment process as stress-free as possible.

Our navigators will…

  • Expedite care through the multi-disciplinary care team
  • Identify any potential barriers to care
  • Streamline appointments and diagnostic testing
  • Direct you to clinic, community and national resources
  • Provide education resources to empower patients and their families
  • Offer emotional support to the patient and family members
