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