Patient Navigators

Our Patient Navigation team consists of four navigators whose goals include: improving the overall health of patients, improving the healthcare delivery process, and working to find ways to lower patients’ overall cost of care.

Patient navigators educate patients about treatment processes, and provide information about choices they make about their care. Navigators also provide emotional support, assist with problem-solving, help patients overcome barriers, and encourage them to make wise use of healthcare resources.

The proven benefits of Patient Navigation include reduced hospital days, reduced ICU days, reduced ER visits, helping patients stay on evidenced-based clinical pathways, increased quality of life by reducing therapeutic chemotherapy in the last two weeks of life, increased quality of life by moving patients to hospice earlier, and ensuring the highest quality of life for people diagnosed with cancer.
