A unique part of the center is the breast care navigator. Mary Lingebach, RN, OCN, CBCN, is a certified breast care navigator with over 30 years nursing experience and advanced training in breast imaging and cancer care. Linda Walton, RN, BSN, OCN, who has filled that role for the past three years, will continue to be involved in a part-time capacity and will work alongside her to ensure that patients have all that they need.
When there is an abnormal finding of any kind, the breast care navigator is immediately connected with the woman. She provides reassurance, answers questions and explains results. If the diagnosis is cancer, she will guide the patient through the entire process, every step of the way. To contact the navigator, please call: 443-436-1046 or email MLingebach@cmhlink.org.
