Breast Health

At AtlantiCare, you’ll benefit from an entire Breast Health team.

When the diagnosis is cancer, the breast-health team at AtlantiCare Cancer Care Institute will be on your side. The team starts with you. Members of the team will include a breast surgeon or surgical oncologist, medical and radiation oncologists, pathologists, a breast-nurse navigator, oncology nurses, an oncology dietician, technicians and social workers. Your treatment team will help guide you throughout your journey, customizing your care to meet your personal needs, your individual preferences and your specific type of cancer. We encourage you to be an active participant in your care.

A breast-nurse navigator is available to you throughout your journey.

Our breast-nurse navigator is a compassionate cancer nurse with specialized knowledge to assist you throughout your treatment journey. As an advocate for you, the breast-nurse navigator will do the following:

  • Assist you with scheduling appointments and coordinating your follow-up care.
  • Review your diagnosis and the treatment options presented by your breast-health team.
  • Collaborate with all members of your breast-health team, ensuring a streamlined and coordinated approach to your care.
  • Provide encouragement and support for your physical, spiritual and psychological needs.
  • Connect you to the additional resources you need — at AtlantiCare, within the community and beyond.

We invite you to meet our Breast Health Navigator.
