Lung Center Patient Navigators
Patient navigators in The Lung Center are trained professionals who are available to work with patients and families. They can assist in orienting patients to the hospital, inform them about diagnostic testing, interventional procedures and surgery, and, when necessary, accompany them to appointments. Patient navigators also follow-up with patients after they have returned home to ensure that their next phase of recovery is successful.
