The Norton Healthcare physician relations team is focused on strengthening the relationships between providers in our community, Norton Healthcare hospitals, and Norton Medical Group and Norton Children’s Medical Group practices. Our goal is to improve service and access to the care your patients need.

The physician relations team is available to meet with physicians, nurse practitioners or physician assistants and their office staff throughout the region to discuss referrals and services needed. We strive to provide open communication, and we encourage your feedback so we may better serve you.

The Norton Healthcare physician relations team is available to:

  • Provide training or assistance to Norton EpicLink for instant access to your patient’s information and to make a referral in real time
  • Arrange for continuing medical education (CME) programs given by Norton Healthcare or Norton Children’s providers at your facility or hospital
  • Provide information and discuss services offered
  • Assist you with access, communication and service concerns
