UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's Hospital

Breast Care Coordinator

Having a breast health concern can be a very stressful experience for a woman and her family. St. Luke's Breast Care Coordinator team is a personal contact for them to provide support, information and help through an often challenging maze of choices.

The team consists of three registered nurses who have additional breast health training through the Oncology Nursing Society and were among the first in the country to become Certified Breast Care Nurses (CBCN). When breast imaging is concerning, and further testing is needed, a Breast Care Coordinator becomes a dedicated member of a woman's healthcare team. She assists in providing information, answering questions to help in the decision making process and providing ongoing education and support.

If a diagnosis of breast cancer is made, a Breast Care Coordinator helps women and their families to understand their diagnosis and works side by side to help them through treatment and recovery. She becomes the constant link between the woman and members of her healthcare team.
