Referring Physician Information
Spartanburg Medical Center's Transfer Center is staffed by a registered nurse 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please call us with any patient placement needs. We will collect the patient's pertinent information, including diagnosis and type of bed required based on the physician's order. We will obtain a bed assignment as soon as possible and notify the office and/or patient.
The Transfer Center at Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System provides referring facilities with one contact number for assistance with the transfer process. We are prepared to respond to all your transfer needs including, but not limited to, the following medical emergencies:
• Code Trauma
• Code STEMI
• Code Stroke
• Code Freeze
We will facilitate communication between the referring physician and a Spartanburg Regional physician. Once an accepting physician is obtained, the Transfer Center will provide the needed information to the originating facility.
If the physician in your office needs to talk to a physician in the hospital regarding a patient who needs to be admitted, we can facilitate a conference call between them. Once the decision to admit is made by the accepting physician, no additional calls to secure a bed are needed.
To arrange patient transfer to Spartanburg Medical Center, Spartanburg Medical Center – Mary Black, or Pelham Medical Center, call 877-560-1999.
