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.
