Transplant Patient Referrals

Our dedicated transplant intake coordinators make it easy and convenient for physicians to refer patients for transplant surgery to UT Southwestern Medical Center.

Transplant intake coordinators simplify the process for both physicians and patients, starting from the initial point of contact. 

Depending on the patient’s needs, the transplant intake coordinators take primary responsibility for obtaining the necessary medical records and images, coordinating the initial insurance and financial screenings, and arranging scheduling for the patient’s first appointment. 

When patients have questions about the transplant process, our coordinators can give them an overview of what to expect and make sure they’re ready for their first visit.

Maintaining direct communication with physicians and serving as their point person are also a key part of our coordinators’ roles. 

For hospital-to-hospital transfers, the coordinators work with administrators to secure a bed assignment, keeping all physicians apprised of what’s happening.
