Oncology Patient Navigator
Here at Wooster Community Hospital, we understand how frustrating it can be to navigate the health care system when you have a disease as complex as cancer. We recognized a need for someone who could help cancer patients through the process and created the role of Oncology Patient Navigator.
Your Oncology Patient Navigator is a medical professional who specializes in the process of oncology diagnoses and treatment. They’re here to not only support you with your physical health but also provide you with a shoulder to lean on and moral support as well. We understand how overwhelming this process may be to do alone – so we provide you with a trusted resource to help you through it all.
