Nurse Navigator Service

Our Nurse Navigators are Here to Guide From Diagnosis to Survivorship

Frederick Health's award-winning cancer program provides a nurse navigator to each patient diagnosed with cancer. Our nurse navigator’s goal is to help ease anxiety and eliminate barriers to care. Each Nurse Navigator is a registered, certified oncology nurse with more than 10 years of oncology nursing experience. Patients benefit from their compassion and expertise, while physicians benefit from having another partner in providing quality oncology care to the community.

Our Nurse Navigators are here to guide you from diagnosis to survivorship. All newly diagnosed cancer patients will have the opportunity to work with a Nurse Navigator. Navigators offer education, support and resources to the patient and their families.
