St. Luke's Breast Care Coordinators Offer Support and Guidance for Cancer Patients
From the time our patients make their first appointment through any treatment they may need or accessing follow-up care, the breast care coordinators at St. Luke's Hospital will be there with them every step of the way. Whether they have questions about a screening, what their test results mean or what the next step in their care should be, our specially-trained breast care coordinators will assist and guide them through the diagnostic work-up, diagnosis and treatment process.

The breast care coordinators serve as a patient advocate, navigator and educator, supporting each stage of the breast health experience. The coordinator can:
  • Work with patients to develop a personalized breast health program
  • Help patients understand their diagnostic work-up and medical terminology
  • Help patients understand what to expect of any tests, treatments or procedures
  • Serve as a liaison between the patient and their team of physicians and healthcare providers
  • Communicate the patient's unique needs and concerns to their team of physicians
  • Assist patients to find answers to insurance questions
Our breast care coordinators can also provide relevant information and resources, and determine how to make the patient experience more comfortable, understandable and manageable.
