Heart Center Nurse Navigators
We know that traveling for healthcare is challenging and, at times, overwhelming. To help make the process easier, the Heart Center at Primary Children’s Hospital has two nurse navigators to assist families and patients who need to travel to Salt Lake City, Ut for care.
The nurse navigators with the Heart Center work with both local cardiologists and referring cardiologists to coordinate care for children coming to Primary Children’s Hospital for cardiac cath, EP, or surgical procedures.
- The nurse navigators serve as a single point of contact for families to provide education and support from the time the referral is received through discharge
- The nurse navigators ensure that all pre procedure/pre-operative testing is scheduled prior to the procedure or surgery
- The nurse navigators assist with communication back to referring providers from time of referral until after discharge
Your Nurse Navigators are Jamie Park, RN and Mat Hyder, RN.
