Wyandot Memorial Hospital’s Patient Navigator provides one-on-one guidance and assistance to patients, families and caregivers and helps with many needs. The principal function of the Patient Navigator is to eliminate any barriers to timely screening, diagnosis, treatment and supportive care for each patient while also promoting smooth and timely continuity of care. The Patient Navigator works with a variety of patients – not just oncology patients or patients with chronic diseases – but rather any patient facing diagnostic testing or requiring assistance in any aspect of their medical care.
