Transferring a Patient
Scottsdale Healthcare Level I Trauma Center staff are available to assist you in transferring an injured patient who needs its services in providing advanced trauma and critical care services.
The Trauma Hotline – 480-323-1441 -- is answered 24/7 by our Emergency Department Administrative Staff on duty. They have the autonomy to accept all acute trauma transfers. This is a one-call, simple process, to assist outlying community hospitals in transferring patients to the Trauma Center. The purpose of this referral hotline is to decrease the time spent arranging the logistics of transfer to a higher level of care when time is of critical importance.
The Patient Placement Center at 480-323-7363 is also available to assist outlying facilities in arranging in-house transfers to the Trauma Center.
