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.
Why Do I Need a Navigator?
Sometimes health care is confusing. You may have questions and would like
to talk with a health care professional you can trust, who will listen.
Sometimes you need help finding a medical specialist or need to understand
what screenings or tests will help you stay healthy. Our navigator is
just a phone call away.
