Oncology Navigators

The Oncology Nurse Navigation Program at Community Health Network began in 2006 with our breast cancer patients. Today, the program has expanded to support gynecologic, head/neck/lung, GI/colorectal and genitourinary patients – as well as general navigation services at all locations. We offer navigation to all oncology patients. Learn more about our navigators below.

Contact and Referral

The oncology navigators can be reached by phone Monday through Friday at 317-621-4323, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

What does a navigator do?

The oncology navigator acts as a guide, resource, advocate, educator and liaison for newly diagnosed cancer patients and their family. The navigator is the consistent caregiver through the cancer journey, coordinating appointments and schedules while keeping the patient and family actively involved in their plan of care. After active treatment is completed, patients will transition into our cancer survivorship program.

In this video, watch the story of Nancy's journey through breast cancer with a nurse navigator by her side.
