Cancer Patient Navigator at Holy Cross Cancer Center

There's No Time to Waste...

When the diagnosis is cancer, there is no time to lose. You need answers and a plan. Not in a few days, but now. You need to make the right first call -- that's why we created the Patient Navigator.

A New Concept in Patient Care Not Offered Anywhere Else in the Area...

Patient Navigators are "healthcare insiders." Professionals who have the right contacts. People who can make appointments happen. Fast. Patient Navigators offer information on support groups, similar cases, tests, trials and area programs. They also identify resources for financial assistance, medication needs, home health care, insurance issues, transportation and other concerns.

The Role of a Patient Navigator

While not a healthcare professional, a Patient Navigator will leave all medical advice to physicians but the Navigator will encourage patients to investigate all sources of cancer information. Decisions involving medical treatment, or which healthcare provider to use are highly personal and a Patient Navigator will not try to sway patients in one direction or another. In addition, the physician/patient relationship is respected in all cases with the overall goal of improving the patient's health.

The Patient Navigator is One Phone Call Away

The first step on the journey to recovery and survival is to make one phone call. Call 954-351-5955 to inquire about our Patient Navigator.

Cancer risk assessment, screening and prevention programs are vital to educating people about reducing their chances of developing cancer and assessing the need for intervention. Under the direction of our genetic nurse counselor and the Bienes Cancer Center physicians, our Cancer Risk and Prevention Program is for anyone with cancer or a family history of cancer. The vast majority of participants are women who have or have had breast or ovarian cancer, or are at high risk of developing these two cancers. Click to learn more about Genetic Counseling.
