The Thomas & Dorothy Leavey Cancer Center Navigator Program

Embark on a Journey to Survivorship 

Navigator Programs are nationally recognized for increasing a cancer patient’s chances for survival and quality of life. The complimentary Navigator Program offered at Northridge Hospital’s Leavey Cancer Center connects all newly diagnosed cancer patients with an RN Navigator, Patient Advocate, and an Outreach Coordinator to help guide and support them through diagnosis, treatment and into survivorship.

The Oncology Registered Nurse Navigator is the patient’s point-of-contact concierge to ensure a smooth transition among hospital services. Patients can rely on their Navigator for compassionate support, encouragement and education.

The goal is to foster the mind, body, and spirit through comprehensive services and advanced technology, the Leavey Cancer Center brings together all of the services that our patients need.

 “All of the nurses who took care of me were always ready to help, guide and their kindness was like none I ever experienced in any other medical facility. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to be treated and surrounded by such wonderful staff.”

-Sasha R., Grateful Patient
