Education And Support

Our care for patients with brain and spinal tumors extends beyond diagnosis and treatment to help patients get the support they need for their cancer journey. Here’s what we offer your patients.

Our neuro-oncology patients receive collaborative care from a wide range of specialists. Every member of the neuro-oncology team works together with the neurologists and neuro-oncologists to ensure optimal patient access and timely, relevant, quality care across all Premier Health facilities.
