Welcome to ThriveNV
Not all Nevadans have equal access to health care - or similar health outcomes. We aim to change that.
When you’re diagnosed with illness or struggling to take care of a loved one, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and out of your depth. Your ThriveNV patient navigator is the person who will guide you through the healthcare continuum following a cancer diagnosis.
ThriveNV patient navigators provide navigation services to those in the rural communities across Nevada that would not otherwise have access to a patient navigator. We have experience working with cancer patients and their families and have dedicated our lives to serving others. If you or a family member is dealing with a cancer diagnosis, is in treatment, or is a cancer survivor, and you need additional support, please contact us to see how we can help.
Patient navigators are trained to share your cancer journey with you and with your caregivers or family members. If your navigator does not have the answer, he or she can refer you to another navigator or community service or resource provider who can help you with the next steps in your cancer journey. In some facilities, your support services team will partner with your clinical care team to provide seamless navigation throughout your cancer journey, from diagnosis through survivorship, and, if necessary, hospice care. In other locations, the clinical staff will cover all the roles necessary.
