Marin Healthcare Navigation was founded in 2012, by Kathy Lord King. Kathy began her journey while taking care of her mother who had brain cancer. From diagnosis to treatment, surgery to home care, board and care to hospice, Kathy helped her mother make informed decisions, communicate with providers, caregivers and facilities. After her mother passed away, Kathy was determined to find a way to help people through our convoluted healthcare system and let them know they are not alone.
Kathy completed the Patient Navigation program at Sonoma State University and the Harold P Freeman Institute Patient Navigation course in Harlem, New York in 2011. She became a Board Certified Patient Advocate in November, 2019. She has continued her education through courses at UC Berkeley, conferences and by learning from her wonderful clients who teach her about life every day. These experiences are what has made Marin Healthcare Navigation what it is today.
Marin Healthcare Navigation relies on not only our expertise but the knowledge and experience of medical professionals and other advocates. We collaborate with experts to provide you with the best possible service. However, as private navigators we are not tied to any health provider or insurance entity, our alliance is with you.
We can guide you through the complexities of the healthcare system by supporting you through the overwhelming challenges and time-consuming tasks you may face, from finding treatment to coordinating care and managing billing and claims . As your partner, we deal with this daunting process allowing you to focus on your and your family's health.
