Request an Inpatient Transfer

Patients at other hospitals in need of advanced care can be transferred to our hospital.  Transfers to the center are typically arranged by doctors.  Patients or their family members interested in transfer should make the request through doctors at their current hospitals.  To initiate a transfer request, physicians should call 1-800-NYP-STAT (our Access Transfer Center), which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

Transfers are usually done by traditional ambulance unless the patient is too unstable for this type of transport.  In these cases, some patients may be transferred by our Acute Respiratory Failure Center’s Mobile ECMO Transport Team.
