Neuro-oncology Patient Navigator

Every patient diagnosed with a brain, spine or pituitary tumor is provided with the services of our neuro-oncology patient navigator program. This unique program was developed to assist patients and their families with the challenges that come with a tumor diagnosis. Our patient navigator is a registered nurse who acts as an advocate for patients and families and provides information and support through diagnosis, treatment and beyond. Patient navigator services are free and available as often as needed by patients and families.

Behavioral Oncology

Norton Cancer Institute’s Behavioral Oncology Program is designed to provide supportive, emotional and psychological care for patients diagnosed with brain tumors and their families. Professional counseling is provided by a specially trained nurse practitioner who works to alleviate the stress that comes along with a cancer diagnosis. Through interactions with the counselor, patients learn coping techniques to guide them through this challenging time.

Oral Pharmacy Services

The oral pharmacy offers specialized expertise, integrated support programs and convenient access to prescriptions. Special services include pharmacist consultations and a toll-free number for questions, individually tailored therapies, a refill reminder program and 24- to 72-hour mail delivery of medications. The oral pharmacy also offers follow-up treatment counseling and help with applying for financial assistance.

Financial Counseling

Because the Brain Tumor Center is part of Norton Healthcare, it is guided by the same faith-based mission of caring for the sick and injured in the community. This care includes helping patients make arrangements to pay their bills in a compassionate, friendly way. We understand that making financial arrangements for health care services can be stressful, and we are committed to ensuring your peace of mind.
