Referrals and Transfers

For Physicians

Physicians who wish to transfer patients to the center should call:

Our team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Information on our referral process can be accessed here.

For Patients and their Families

Transfers to the center are arranged between our physicians and those treating the patient at the outside hospital. Patients or their family members interested in transfer should make the request through the physicians at their current hospitals. For general information about our program, please email ecmo@nyp.org (Monitored Monday through Friday, 9AM – 5PM).

Transfer Logistics

Transfers are usually done by traditional ambulance unless the patient is too unstable for this type of transport. In these cases, some patients may be transferred by the center's Mobile ECMO Transport Team. Flight transfers are also available, when appropriate.
