Transfer Center

The Transfer Center was created to assist referring physicians and facilities in quickly and efficiently transferring patients to Vanderbilt. It is staffed by an R.N. Transfer Nurse during regular business hours and Life Flight EMTs or Paramedics at night and on weekends.

The nurse will obtain information about the patient and put the referring physician in touch with the appropriate VUMC physician. Once approval has been obtained to transfer the patient, the Transfer Nurse will handle the logistics of the transfer. The Transfer Center can be reached at (615) 343-0976.
