The Abramson Cancer Center at Chester County Hospital has a team of oncology nurse navigators who guide patients and families every step of the way, from diagnosis to treatment to follow up. Thoracic oncology patients work with Meghan McCarraher, BSN, RN, OCN (contact information below).
Lung, esophageal, and other thoracic cancers typically require multiple appointments with many different specialists. The navigator can set up and coordinate those appointments. She also can help patients and families with the process of having surgery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania while receiving other treatments and follow-up care at Chester County Hospital. Ms. McCarraher can connect patients and families with any support services they might need.
