Intermountain Healthcare Physician Transfer Center
The Intermountain Healthcare Physician Transfer Center (PTC) began operation in April 2006. The mission of the Center is to quickly and efficiently assist physicians in the process of transferring and admitting patients to LDS Hospital, Intermountain Medical Center, and Primary Children’s Medical Center.
The Center is located at the Life Flight Operations Center at the Salt Lake International Airport. Staffed by highly trained dispatchers who work closely with referring physicians from hospitals, clinics, and private offices throughout the United States and Canada, the transfer team is a valuable resource in safely transporting and admitting patients.
The Transfer Center began operation in 2006 with 492 transfers, in 2010, there were 5777 transfers, and the Center’s transfers totaled 6800 in 2011. In 2014, we had 14,482 transfers. The Center is staffed 24 hours a day and has received calls from as far away as Tahiti!
The Transfer Team takes pride in handling each call in an efficient, a friendly, and a professional manner. We are always implementing new procedures to make the process as efficient as possible. A referring physician should only have to make one call, and the transfer team does the rest. “Any patient, anywhere, anytime transfers.”
If you are a physician and need assistance to transfer your patient, please call 801-321-3381 or 1-800-916-5494.
