Danielle Spivey Joins Central Carolina Hospital
August 8, 2016
Central Carolina Hospital announces that Danielle Spivey, RN, has joined its staff and will be providing breast health patient navigator services to patients throughout Lee County and surrounding areas. Spivey is a registered nurse who brings more than 12 years of clinical experience to Central Carolina Hospital.
"Danielle has 12 years of experience in nursing and caring for our community, and she is an excellent addition to our hospital team," said John Maxwell, CEO of Central Carolina Hospital. "Breast Cancer is an increasing concern, and Danielle's position will be important as Central Carolina Hospital strives to meet our region's evolving healthcare needs and make our community healthier."
A Breast Health Navigator is unique for a community hospital. More often found in larger hospitals, navigators provide continuity for patients and their families throughout their healthcare experience during what can be a very stressful time in a woman's life. In her role, she will coordinate the clinical, educational and supportive needs of patients who are facing a possible breast cancer diagnosis ensuring that they have someone to help navigate the path to care, guiding them through tests, procedures, and the emotions that come with every stage.
Previously, she was Administrative Supervisor at Central Carolina Hospital for 5 years. Then went on to pursue opportunities in occupational health and community relations. "While away from CCH for a few short years I discovered a passion for community involvement and education," says Danielle Spivey, RN. "The Patient Navigator role is the perfect combination of all the things that I love."
She, her husband, and their 2 children live in Sanford, NC.
Spivey is available now to help guide patients in all aspects of breast care. To schedule a mammogram appointment, please call 919.774.2157.
