An Experienced, Personal Guide Between Patients and the Healthcare Team
“The patient navigation program helps patients, families and caregivers navigate the many resources needed during the cancer journey. Patient navigators bring health care and life care together. The complexity of the healthcare system often leaves patients feeling confused, lost or alienated. The patient navigator helps patients by guiding them through the healthcare system and connecting them with appropriate resources and support.”
Darlene D. Weyer, DO
Medical Director of the Women’s Health Center at the Lima Memorial Medical Park
“When you’re told you have cancer, you’re in a tunnel, and a lot of things they tell you, you don’t comprehend. The navigator was great in telling us what would likely happen next and guided us where we needed to go.”
