For most women, a diagnosis of breast cancer brings with it a host of medical questions and concerns, along with a variety of emotional issues.
To help you better manage your breast cancer care, Mercy Hospital's Breast Cancer Patient Navigator Program provides a specially trained nurse practitioner to guide you through the many phases of breast cancer, from diagnosis and treatment through post recovery. This service is available no matter where you receive treatment.
Our breast cancer navigator, Candice Gerrity, RN, MSN, FNP, provides free consultation services and connects you to follow-up care and additional support.
The benefits of the program include improved and more timely access to healthcare services and information, fewer delayed and missed appointments, and increased satisfaction with your healthcare experience.
Catholic Health’s Breast Cancer Patient Navigator Program is available to all women who have been recently diagnosed, are already living with the disease, or have had a recurrence of the disease.
Catholic Health’s Breast Patient Navigator Program is a complimentary service; there is no cost to you or your insurance company to use this program.
