Cancer Grants Will Expand Hospital Services


St. Charles has a half a million dollars in grants to help patients navigate its complicated healthcare system. A quarter of a million dollars came from Pacific Source Health Plans. Peggy Lukens has been a breast cancer nurse navigator for the last five years at St. Charles. These kind of jobs are becoming more prevalent across the country.  “A navigator steps in to help the patient from diagnosis to survivorship. They help patients through the complexities of the healthcare system providing clinical and emotional support.” Diseases like breast cancer can be especially challenging to maneuver because of all the different providers in a patient's treatment. With the additional funds, St. Charles plans to add a lung cancer, a general cancer and two heart nurse navigators.
