Patient story

Early detection for Wendy

Wendy Campbell of Swanton has always been diligent about attending her annual physical. Unfortunately, the unthinkable happened; her mammogram indicated she had a lump so small that it could not yet be felt. Her physician, Dr. Frank Zsoldos, immediately set up an appointment with a local general surgeon, and within three days, her surgery at NMC was complete. Her cancer is in remission.

Care management

NMC recognizes that cancer affects not only a person’s physical health but also emotional health, finances, relationships, caregivers and more. Our Care Management team and Breast Care Navigator give patients trusted professionals to help navigate the healthcare systems, assess their needs, provide information about resources, and coordinate with other community agencies. We are here to help, for more information about any of the topics below or services not listed, contact us by emailing [email protected].

  • Healthcare Advance Directives
  • Assistance in applying for disability and/or retirement benefits
  • Financial aid applications and referrals
  • Insurance questions/applications
  • Transportation assistance
  • Home care and/or home nursing service referrals
  • Skilled nursing or assisted living facility referrals and information
This is a free service and there is no limit to how many times you can meet with a care manager. Services are not dependent on where a patient is receiving medical care, meaning that patients do not need to be receiving treatment at NMC to use our care management services.

Did you know?

Our program has been fully accredited by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons since 1992. We strive to meet the comprehensive needs of our patients through a collaborative approach.

We are fortunate to have an office of the Champlain Valley Hematology Oncology here on our campus. For patients who need Radiation Oncology as part of their treatment, we collaborate closely with University of Vermont Medical Center Radiation Oncology division and those services are provided at their site as an integrated approach to the patient’s overall care. 

Led by the Cancer Committee, our program goals include a focus on the diagnosis, treatment and follow up of patients with all cancer types, on an outpatient basis, in which we use a multidisciplinary approach to treatment.  

We have an active Tumor Board and we participate in the state wide Vermont Cancer Registry. Our Cancer Committee includes clinical and non-clinical members from NMC, the University of Vermont Medical Center, The American Cancer Society, Vermonters Taking Action Against Cancer (VTAAC) and the Vermont Department of Health.
