Bayshore expands health care navigation services with CAREpath
Bayshore HealthCare recently acquired CAREpath™, an organization that specializes in providing cancer assistance support to individuals in need.
The CAREpath Team includes highly experienced Canadian cancer specialists (support staff, oncology nurses and oncologists) who follow the most up-to-date guidelines for cancer treatment and care. They work together to ensure clients receive the clear advice, information and support they need to navigate the increasingly complex public health care system. The only program of its kind in the world, CAREpath has built a strong customer base with particular focus on employers who offer cancer assistance as part of an employee benefits program.
CAREpath is based in Toronto but provides services across Canada. Its work is well aligned with Bayshore’s existing offerings in health care navigation, including the Seniors Care Assistance Program®, which helps families understand their senior care options.
“CAREpath fits Bayshore’s vision of becoming a leader in health care navigation services,” says Sherry Hnatyshyn-Webster, Bayshore’s transition leader for the acquisition. “The program’s cancer specialists are leaders in their field, and they work with clients to make sure they receive proper treatment in the right facilities in a timely manner.”
Bringing CAREpath on board will help Bayshore expand its health care navigation services across the country. Bayshore’s strong nursing culture and in-depth understanding of community health care programs and services makes it an ideal organization to support employers, their employees and family members when a health crisis strikes.
CAREpath will operate as a separate business. The physician creators of the CAREpath Navigation Program, Dr. Denny DePetrillo and Dr. Bill Hryniuk, will continue in their roles on the organization’s Medical Advisory Board for the program. Anita McGowan, Director of Nursing, will also continue in her role, ensuring the highest level of client service.
