    To help streamline patient transfers, we ask that you provide the following at the time of call: 

    • Patient demographics
    • Diagnosis
    • Medical services required
    • Patient’s current medical condition
    • Contact information for the current attending physician
    • Current location of patient 

    We also need: 

    • Appropriate insurance authorization
    • A copy of the patient’s medical record and a discharge summary to accompany the patient during transfer
    • Copies of all radiology exams (x-ray, CT, MRI, angiograms, etc.) to accompany the patient during transfer.
