Patient Transfers

Offered exclusively to physicians and hospital staff, UT Southwestern's hospital-to-hospital patient transfer service provides a seamless transition of patient care, including emergency and complex cases, to our facilities.

With one call to UT Southwestern’s hospital-to-hospital transfer service, a referring physician or staff can conference with University Hospital Patient Intake Services, house supervisors, on-call physicians, as well as additional care team members who may be involved in the patient’s care.

Communication Regarding Patient Status

Throughout the patients’ stay at UT Southwestern, referring physicians are kept informed of their patients’ status and are notified should there be any changes to the plan of transfer.
