FINDING THE BEST PATH
Patient support and navigation
A cancer diagnosis is enough to think about on its own. At Union Hospital, we try to guide patients through the healthcare environment ― from offering emotional support and transportation assistance to simply answering questions and helping people find their way around the campus.
Staff calls patients to learn about their concerns, questions and barriers to treatment. Some patients may have limited mobility or be confused about the location of an appointment. Others experience fear or depression.
The cancer program has a full-time navigator and social worker for patient navigation to provide support for patients before, during, and after appointments.
