The SCCA Proton Therapy Center has an outstanding opportunity for a Patient Navigator (Full-Time, Day Shifts). The Patient Navigator is responsible for coordinating the delivery of medical care, and the patients access to various health care services. The Patient Navigator will coordinate the patients entry into and through the health care system, coordinate patient care services and serve as patient advocate.
Under the general direction of the Associate Director of Patient Access, the Patient Navigator will use knowledge of the Center policies/procedures, insurance coverage requirements, to coordinate all patient services such as registration/intake, arranging diagnostic tests or procedures, scheduling consultation and follow up requests, and scheduling services of other hospital departments to facilitate delivery of care to patients.
At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, teams of world-renowned scientists and humanitarians work together to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases. Researchers are discovering new ways to detect cancers earlier, improve treatments, and learn how to prevent cancers from growing. Although Fred Hutchinson opened its doors in 1975, its history began about 20 years before that. In 1962 Fred Hutchinson envisioned a center devoted to studying cancer, a disease that took his brother’s life. Today Fred Hutchinson is contributing to the next waves of breakthrough treatments and prevention strategies. Fred Hutchinson collaborates with the Seattle Cancer Alliance, the National Cancer Institute, and the University of Washington.
