breast health navigator
A special part of the St. Francis Breast Health Center are our Breast Health Navigators, who are available at no cost to patients who have results that come back indicating cancer, as well as those that are abnormal but non-cancerous. She offers emotional support and education to ensure our patients know all of their options and understand exactly what to expect during their testing and treatment.
For women who are diagnosed with breast cancer, the options, procedures, timelines and appointments can seem confusing and overwhelming. Our navigators:
Arrange and coordinates appointments for physician office visits, diagnostic testing, and surgery
Ensure that our patients understand what is happening and why
Coordinate referrals to community resources, such as support groups, social services and financial aid
St. Francis offers the services of our Breast Health Navigators at no cost to any woman who is a patient of the St. Francis Breast Health Center. Outside referrals to St. Francis services from physician offices and hospital staff are also accepted.
