Stephanie Bonfilio, MSN, RN, OCN, ONN-CG
St. Elizabeth Healthcare Cancer Center
Stephanie has spent her entire nursing career in the field of oncology, approximately 14 years. She spent her first 2 years working with children in the bone marrow transplant section of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, and the remainder in outpatient oncology in the roles of Infusion Nurse, Nurse Navigator, Clinical Education Specialist, and most recently as Oncology Navigation Manager at St. Elizabeth Cancer Center. Most of her clinical background focused on the medical oncology portion of the cancer continuum, caring for patients with different types of cancer. It wasn’t until building the Patient Navigation Program in 2020 that Stephanie focused on disease-specific care along the entire continuum, with lung and gastrointestinal disease sites. She is a huge advocate for focusing processes on the patient first and utilizing quality-driven metrics to improve patients’ experiences and outcomes.
