Centra Health

Our approach

Centra’s Physician Liaison program consists of a team of experienced healthcare professionals who promote positive relationships between Centra, referring providers and staff.
The Physician Liaison program is another way Centra is striving to better serve our referring community and their patients.

Our physician liaisons can:


  • Provide information on new programs, physicians, services, and clinical trials
  • Assist with referrals, access, and communication
  • Assist with resolution of issues and service concerns
  • Mail and/or deliver copies of Centra collateral and brochures
  • Serve as the main resource for any Centra questions
