A diagnosis of cancer can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. At OSF HealthCare Saint Anthony’s Health Center, we’re here to help.

Through our patient navigator program, you’ll have a dedicated professional who will be with you every step of the way.

You are not alone. 

What is a patient navigator?

A patient navigator is a single point of contact for you and your family.
The patient navigator is an educator, an advocate and a friend. The
navigator is a specially trained professional who assists in all aspects of
your care experience.

How can the patient navigator assist me?

Patient navigators can assist with many aspects of your care, including:

  • Helping you and your family members navigate the comprehensive services available.
  • Assessing the individual and personal needs of you and your family.
  • Explaining the necessary information, education and resource materials you receive so you know what to expect throughout your treatment.
  • Assisting with the coordination and scheduling of tests and services.
  • Communicating with physicians, case managers, support service personnel, family members and others on your behalf.
  • Supporting you and your family members by following up after your visit to talk about additional information and services available to you.
  • Referring you to the appropriate physician office or other health care resource when clinic issues arise.
