At DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital, we believe in treating the whole person – emotionally and physically. Support for cancer goes beyond the latest treatment options and advanced medical expertise. No matter the diagnosis or treatment, the center takes a multidisciplinary approach to everything they do.

Oncology Nurse Navigators

Our multidisciplinary approach includes two certified nurse navigators. Our nurse navigators help patients through the continuum of care from diagnosis, through treatments, into survivorship and remove any barriers to care for patients.

Nurse navigation services include:

  • Coordinate appointments
  • Educate patients and caregivers about diagnosis and treatment options
  • Acts as liaison between patient, caregivers and healthcare providers
  • Connect patients with support services
  • Continuous supportive care throughout the cancer journey

  • Help reduce cancer treatment side effects
  • Help optimize energy, strength, and immune function
