Asian Health

Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset has launched a new Chinese Medical Program with a bilingual patient navigator who will assist in coordinating care for Chinese patients.

Our patient navigator, Angela Lee, will assist patients with arrangements for round-trip transportation for medical appointments; finding medical specialists; filling out forms; accompanying them to medical appointments and interpretation and translation.

Angela has more than 15 years of experience serving the Chinese community in the health care and social services fields. A Hong Kong native, she speaks fluent Cantonese, Mandarin and Toishanese dialects.

She previously served as the Director of the Chinese and Russian Medical Programs at Monmouth Medical Center, Community Executive at the American Cancer Society-Asian Initiatives and Associate Director at New York Asian Women’s Center, a community-based organization helping Asian women and children overcome domestic violence.
