With the patient navigation program, women who become part of the
Women's Cancer Center's cancer treatment are offered individualized, compassionate care with a focus on wellness, stress reduction and quality of life and access to our full scope of research opportunities.

Starting with a woman’s first call for an appointment, our staff works with her to ensure a coordinated, streamlined experience. Her first visit includes a consultation with a team of specialists. If follow-up tests are necessary, we will make every effort to schedule them for the same day as this initial consultation. While her medical team discusses treatment options, a social worker will meet with the patient and her family to review support resources and logistics. In the end, everyone comes together to chart the best course of care. Read more »

Gynecologic Oncology Nurse Navigator

"Being a navigator allows a place to offer all of who I am to women who are in a very vulnerable time in their lives. As a cancer survivor I know how important it is to have expert, caring professionals be present to listen, guide and walk side by side through the healing journey. I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my heart and mind with all those who call.
