The Patient Navigator program is designed to provide services and resources to help guide patients through the health care system so they can focus on treatment and well being. The Patient Navigator also helps patients access community resources that would best help meet a patient’s need for:
Lodging and transportation
Disease and treatment reference materials
Additional health care support
The Patient Navigator assists patients in understanding and utilizing services and educational information provided by Olympic Medical Cancer Center. Olympic Medical Center provides this service free of charge thanks in part to the generous support of the OMC Foundation, and can be contacted by a patient, a family member or a physician. For more information on the Patient Navigator, please call (360) 582-2845.
Health Resource Library
Cancer patients, along with their families and friends, can access the resource library for education about cancer treatments, living with cancer, along with videos, reference books and other information for cancer patients.
Support Groups & Group Activities
Olympic Medical Cancer Center works with the community to facilitate a number of cancer support groups for both men and women. Beyond support groups, Olympic Medical Cancer Center works closely with Cancer Lifeline of Seattle to bring activities to the area, including a yearly Lymphedema Tea, art and writing experiences and more.
