Make a referral
To make a referral, call the Salem Health Spine Center at 503-814-BACK (2225) or download a physician referral form and fax it, along with records that pertain to the spine problem, to the Salem Health Spine Center at 503-814-5495.
Please remember a spine level MRI within the last 12 months is required for a referral to the Salem Health Spine Center. If an MRI is unable to be completed, a CT scan will suffice.
Salem Health Spine Center hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Once the Salem Health Spine Center receives your referral, one of our intake specialists will contact your patient to obtain a complete history of their spine problem and collect recent X-rays, MRIs or other pertinent images.
A neurosurgeon reviews that information and makes a treatment recommendation. If additional patient referrals are necessary, our nurse navigators will handle those referrals — once we have received your initial referral — and keep you informed of the recommendations and plan.
