ENHANCING HIGH-QUALITY CANCER CARE

In the AMITA Health Alexian Brothers Cancer Institute, Elk Grove Village, philanthropy was used to hire an additional full-time nurse navigator, to create additional clinic space and to improve the overall care environment. “As a result of philanthropy, patients now benefit from centralized cancer care and supportive services coordinated among multidisciplinary team members by expert nurse navigators,” says Karen Giammicchio, assistant vice president, oncology services line, AMITA Health.
