When a patient begins their journey with us, a nurse navigator coordinates all aspects of the patient’s care, including ensuring the patient and family understand the care plan. From the initial visit and evaluation to treatment and recovery, we want our patients to be educated about their treatment plan and feel comfortable with their path.
