To the importance

and meaning of our work

ION provides the best possible experience for our patients at what likely is the most difficult time of their lives. We accomplish this through collaboration and communication with our referring physicians, with our fellow team members, and with those we serve.

We promise our patients the right therapy at the right time at the right place. But we do more. We reach out to the community to find services and resources to help relieve physical, emotional and financial burdens, anything from copays, to transportation, to food.



Kay's Story

What we do matters.

Patients are at the center of everything we do. We communicate with words and with our actions. Every member of the team makes a difference in the way our patients and families feel.

“Every question that I asked, Dr. Purviance looked at me, he never looked at his watch. It was like I was his only patient.” - Kay Kurka

Bob's Story

It could be my dad, my brother, my husband.

Treating people like family means we make sure every patient gets the best possible clinical care but also means we give them the emotional support they need during their journey.

“It’s very heartwarming knowing I’m part of a family and treated with love here. They have compassion. They’re just lovely people.” - Bob Dickey

We Listen and Respond

It’s hard to absorb information when you’re newly diagnosed. Emotions can override our ability to absorb information. Patients and families told us they wanted to understand what to expect with radiation and chemotherapy treatments, but they also wanted encouragement. Our patient education videos provide information, support and hope.

“What you’re going through is going to be scary at times but you are strong and I know that you can get through this.” - Robyn Frisby-Lummus
