About Us

If you have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, we offer a complimentary and exclusive thyroid nurse navigator, at The Center for Cancer Care at Saint Clare’s Denville Hospital. The navigator is available to support and guide you through diagnosis, treatment and recovery.

Our Team

Our thyroid nurse navigator works closely with our multidisciplinary team of experts including endocrinologists, radiologists, nuclear medicine technologists, nurses, ultrasound technologists and licensed social workers who collaborate to provide a custom, comprehensive treatment plan for every patient and family.

Our Approach

The goal of a nurse navigator is to assure that you receive timely, quality treatment for your cancer. The navigator works with your team to coordinate all of the services you will need to fight your cancer. Our patient navigator is available to you from the time your cancer is detected through survivorship. In addition to efficiently coordinating your care, the navigator is compassionate and available to discuss all the ways your diagnosis affects your life.
