Trained nurse provides education, support to patients facing breast health issues
BEAUFORT, SC – Beaufort Memorial Hospital patients facing a breast cancer diagnosis or other breast health concerns now have a trained advocate to help them through their treatment, thanks to the addition of new Breast Care Coordinator Amy Luce, RN, CPHM.
Amy Luce partners with breast care patients and their physicians to provide education, coordinate appointments, identify resources for services, or simply be a sounding board for patients and their family members. She will be joining and working closely with fellow Breast Care Coordinator, Jackie Brown, RN.
Patients are connected with Luce by their physician or surgeon, or through a self-referral. At the time of referral, Luce provides a personal consultation to better understand the patient’s needs. She may also provide relevant information and resources, and determine how to make the care experience more comfortable, understandable and manageable.
Luce has held nursing positions in the Beaufort area over the past 10 years. She has a strong background in oncology case management and chemotherapy infusion. She is also a Certified Professional Healthcare Management Registered Nurse. She is currently seeing patients at the Beaufort Memorial Women’s Imaging Center in Beaufort.
The services of the Breast Care Coordinator are provided at no charge to breast care patients. For more information or to reach Amy Luce, RN, call 843-522-5895 or visit www.bmhsc.org
