    • Oncology Patient Navigators
      Patient navigators work with patients from the time of diagnosis through all phases of their cancer care treatment and recovery to survivorship. Currently, patient navigators are available to serve individuals diagnosed with breast, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary cancers at MarinHealth Medical Center. Philanthropy provides resources to support cancer patients with a variety of services during their treatment including transportation, nutrition, emotional support and so much more.
