Patient Navigator Program

At a point when you’re facing one of the greatest challenges of your life, you shouldn’t have to deal with added obstacles. Financial concerns may cause you to postpone a necessary appointment that is critical to your treatment. Maybe you’re confused about your diagnosis, or you would like more information about your treatment program? Regardless, it’s important not to let this fear and uncertainty dictate your treatment or affect the timely care you need.

Norton Cancer Institute’s Patient Navigator Program is designed to guide you through your entire treatment and recovery process – from before diagnosis through treatment to recovery and survivorship. Our oncology-certified patient navigators help steer your treatment course and connect you with the support you need.

Patient navigators:

  • Help patients navigate the health care system
  • Provide one-on-one consultations to help patients and family members better understand the diagnosis and treatment options
  • Assist with information gathering
  • Coordinate care and streamline appointments for quicker treatment
  • Identify and provide assistance to overcome any barriers to cancer care, such as finances, transportation, language, culture, communication or fear
  • Link patients, caregivers and families to community resources to address specific needs during cancer treatment
  • Lead and facilitate support groups

Equipped with an in-depth understanding and familiarity of the health care system, our patient navigators are here to help ease stress and provide emotional support for the entire family. All services are free and available to anyone in the community regardless of where they receive care.
