Four years ago, East Jefferson General Hospital transformed the experience of cancer patients in our region by introducing the Cancer Navigator program.

They help coordinate patient treatment schedules, support groups and assist in every aspect of care so the patient has a one-on-one resource throughout their cancer journey.
