At UofL Health we are committed to our referring providers and creating a health care system that is accessible. To make it easier for our referring providers to find care for cancer patients, we have implemented a dedicated physician-only cancer line to answer any questions referring providers may have about our services and work-ups for cancer diagnosis. Thank you for putting your trust in UofL Health - Brown Cancer Center and thank you for entrusting the care of your patients with us.
Physician-only cancer line

Referring provider testimonial
Dr. Theuer discovered what he believed to be a cancerous mass in the patient’s colon. Tammy, the practice manager, called the physician-only cancer line and was immediately in contact with a nurse. Tammy was over the moon at being able to reach an oncology contact with the patient still in Dr. Theuer’s office. The first-time cancer patient left Dr. Theuer’s office knowing he/she would be contacted by oncology to set up an appointment. Before going to bed the same day, the patient had an appointment scheduled and was able to see an oncologist at UofL Health - Medical Center Northeast the VERY NEXT DAY. Tammy was so appreciative that she was able to help the patient immediately.
Call 502-562-HOPE (4673) for new patient referrals to the multidisciplinary oncology teams.
Call 502-237-4611 for Inpatient oncology consults. To be used when an oncology patient presents in a UofL Health hospital with urgent issues and a consult by a medical oncologist is needed. These services are now available at UofL Hospital and Jewish Hospital. Additional sites within the UofL Health network will be added.
