Patient Transfer Center


Your Patient's Transfer is One Call Away All Day, Every Day
(631) 444-1911

What is the Patient Transfer Center?

Stony Brook University Hospital's Patient Transfer Center serves as a single point of contact to streamline patient transfers. The service is designed to save time and provide convenience.

Just one telephone call by the referring physician begins the coordination process between the referring facility and Stony Brook University Hospital. This call initiates arrangements for transfer, including the acceptance of the patient, bed selection, and transport logistics. The Patient Transport Center provides 24 hour coverage/seven days a week.

To request a patient transfer, call the Transfer Center at (631) 444-1911

How do I request a Patient Transfer?

Your calls to the Transfer Center are answered by EMS personnel who are trained in coordinating transfers. Referring physicians will be asked to provide the following:

  • Patient demographics
  • Diagnosis
  • Medical service(s) required
  • Patient's current clinical condition
  • Contact information for the current attending physician
  • The current location of the patient

Patients will be accepted for transfer upon agreement by the accepting attending medical staff at Stony Brook University Hospital and financial clearance. After the patient is accepted, the appropriate inpatient bed assignment will be coordinated and the transfer will be scheduled, based on bed availability. (631) 444-1911

What makes your Patient Transfer Center special?

When Stony Brook's medical team is asked to respond, referring physicians can be assured that our transport teams bring critical care resources to the patient's bedside and continue intensive care treatment during transport of the patient, whether by ground ambulance or helicopter.

The Patient Transfer Center is part of Stony Brook's comprehensive Emergency Medical Services system, providing patients with the highest level of clinical expertise and state-of-the-art transportation. This system is the only one of its kind on Long Island with a team of specially trained paramedics, critical care emergency nurses, and respiratory therapists. Specialized transport teams for neonatal and pediatric patients are comprised of physicians, nurse practitioners, neonatal intensive care nurses, respiratory therapists, and critical care emergency nurses. All staffing is based upon patient acuity. (631) 444-1911
