Phoebe Putney promotes program to help cancer patients

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The journey through cancer treatment is always tough, but Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital has a program to help make it a little easier.

Patients at Phoebe's Cancer Center are assigned a nurse navigator who helps coordinate patient care, identify problem areas, make appropriate referrals, and ensure the most efficient and effective treatment.

Nurse navigator Jessica Blanchard said, "I am that central point of contact for those patients. I'm one person they can call, no matter how many doctors they have, that can help them work through their questions."

Each nurse navigator is a registered nurse. If you want more information about the program, call Blanchard at 312-3999.
