Mercy Health Nurse Navigators assist patients with breast health journey

The Exchange - FFL

At the Comprehensive Breast Centers at Mercy Health, Nurse Navigators play a large role in patient education.

They provide education and clarity for terms that women may hear when they have a mammogram or receive a phone call after a mammogram.

When you're talking about breast health, and perhaps something questionable being found, it can be pretty scary and the terminology doesn't help. Nurse Navigator Stacey Newmyer joined us to clear up some of the confusion.

Watch the full interview in the video above.

As the only centers of their kind in West Michigan, Mercy Health Comprehensive Breast Centers (located in both Grand Rapids and Muskegon) deliver prompt, personal, specialized care for all aspects of breast health. Here, we focus on total breast health — from screening mammograms and lifetime cancer risk analysis to, when necessary, the latest surgical procedures and treatments.
