The HackensackUMC Patient Transfer Center program increases community access to tertiary care services by streamlining the patient transfer process through a single customer service agent. The Patient Transfer Center provides services, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The Patient Transfer Center directs emergent patients into appropriate HackensackUMC tertiary care with just one phone call. By calling 855.FOR.HUMC (855.367.4862), you are put in contact with an experienced transfer coordinator who ensures that your patient is transferred or admitted quickly and efficiently.
The Center handles the entire transfer process, including: consultation with the accepting physician specialists, arranging for a patient bed, communicating with the nursing staff, and arranging for patient transport (air or ground).
One call to the Patient Transfer Center by the referring hospital physician is all it takes to begin the transfer process. Reducing the operational aspect of a transfer to just one call allows medical specialists to focus on the patient and clinical aspects of the transfer.
