A breast cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. While trying to accept the diagnosis, patients and their families may find themselves inundated with information, and they have many questions about their new diagnosis, treatment options, appointments, schedules and referrals.

Thanks to The Valley Hospital’s Breast Health Navigators, patients receive support and guidance by certified navigators through the entire breast cancer treatment process, from diagnosis through treatment and survivorship. Our navigators complement the services provided by the entire multidisciplinary healthcare team. Navigation needs are tailored to each individual patient and their families.


Our Breast Health Navigator team includes:

  • Patient Navigators at our Breast Imaging Center
  • A Nurse Navigator at our Comprehensive Cancer Care Center


Our navigators:

  • Coordinate testing, medical appointments and other services throughout the continuum of breast cancer care
  • Obtain patient records from other medical facilities
  • Educate patients about their disease process, treatment options, side effects and more
  • Serve as a liaison between patients and their physician(s), assisting in communication with the multidisciplinary team
  • Help patients access community services or supportive resources that can help patients stay on track with treatment or improve their quality of life
  • Provide basic nutritional and physical fitness support
  • Offer emotional support

In addition, our Nurse Navigator provides a holistic and integrative approach to the patient’s healthcare that promotes health and healing. This level of coordination and support is especially useful as patients face physical and emotional burdens related to their new diagnosis.
