Dealing with cancer can be physically and emotionally trying for patients and loved ones. We offer programs designed to help meet the needs of everyone affected and work to treat the whole person - not just the disease.
Breast cancer patients at Intermountain Healthcare are teamed up with a Care Coordinator, a nurse specially trained to help answer your questions and coordinate your care with the healthcare team, through treatment and recovery.
