Nurse Navigators

The role of the Nurse Navigator is to identify possible barriers to care and work with the patient, patient's family, and clinical care team to provide a team-based care plan. Our team of Nurse Navigators help make the complicated more understandable, the overwhelming more manageable, and the overall health experience patient-centered. Please call us at 989.583.5263, Monday through Friday, with any questions or concerns.
