Breast Center Nurse Navigator
Saint Agnes Medical Center offers a full-time Nurse Navigator, a patient advocate for our breast cancer patients and their families. The Nurse Navigator assists patients from diagnosis and treatment through the recovery process. She consults with the healthcare team and is available to discuss concerns, answer questions, provide moral support and make referrals to other resources, including the American Cancer Society.
The American Cancer Society provides a support program, Reach to Recovery, for post-surgery patients. The Nurse Navigator will make a referral for Reach to Recovery with your consent and a physician order. For information about the program, visit www.cancer.org.
