What Is a Navigator?

Our Health & Wellness Navigator is a registered nurse who works with you to determine your health and wellness issues and goals. She will work closely with you to help you develop strategies to achieve your goals. Our goal is to help you “navigate” through a complex health care system, ensuring you receive the right care at the right time.
