One of the most difficult things about cancer treatment is the unknown. At Spectrum Health Cancer Center, we understand. We want to do everything in our power to make this time a little easier, starting with offering you and your family the services of a nurse navigator. The navigator is someone who can clarify things. They will look out for you and translate the language of the hospital and the language of your symptoms into words you can understand. The navigator will be with you and your family throughout your care.
Your nurse navigator is a nurse with special training and certification in cancer services who will help you make your way through the health care system. An advocate, the navigator will be there to make sure you receive all the services we provide and offer explanations when you need them and encouragement when you want it.
