Fast Access to a Specialty Physician
Our Transfer Nurse Coordinators will connect you to the appropriate NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital physician to discuss clinical case and determine clinical appropriateness for transfer.
Upon mutual physician approval, our Transfer Nurse Coordinators will expedite your patient's transfer by:
- Triaging patient to the appropriate unit at requested campus
- Coordinating assignment of hospital bed as well as other administrative matters with the Admitting Department at requested campus
- Facilitating communication between medical and nursing staff of transferring hospital and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital
Whenever possible, transport of your patient will be coordinated through NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital EMS, with ambulances stationed at Weill Cornell and Columbia campuses. To better serve the Westchester and Hudson Valley regions, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital now has an ALS ambulance stationed at the NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester Behavioral Health Center campus, providing pediatric, neonatal and adult transport. The appropriate level of EMS transportation is determined after consultation among the transferring and accepting physicians and our highly trained transfer team.
Our Transfer Nurse Coordinators will keep you informed of your patient's status throughout the transfer process. We are available 24/7 to answer questions regarding the transfer process such as: name of accepting physician, physician contact information, accepting nursing unit and patient arrival time.
