When you call, a patient placement specialist will assess your need and manage all aspects of the call, including:
- Determining bed availability for direct admits, transfers and ED admits — and assisting with the transfer process.
- Making connections with appropriate specialists for transfers and consultations.
- Access to the Life Flight Network and the Randall Children's Hospital KIDS Team mobile ICU for neonatal and pediatric transport and treatment.

For transfers, our specialists follow protocols developed by each represented specialty. Of course, consulting and referring doctors who are accustomed to calling each other directly may continue to do so. Our goal is to make accessing Legacy's services easier and faster for referring hospitals and physicians.
