The center has an all-female team, including a new position, the patient navigator.
"The navigator will serve as the patient's personal assistant," said Dr. Lisa Boohar, radiation oncologist and specialist in breast health. "This marks the beginning of a new approach to care delivery."
The Susan G. Komen Foundation will partner with Sequoia Hospital in promoting the importance of breast cancer prevention. According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, except for skin cancers. Death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1990, according to a Sequoia Hospital press release.
