Banner Transfer Services
Dedicated Admission Line
Pediatric Admission Line
Behavioral Health Transfers
In 2012, the program was renamed Banner Transfer Services and expanded to incorporate all Banner hospitals in Maricopa and Pinal counties, plus additional clinical services that Banner Health offers.
Rather than searching for a hospital with open beds, necessary specialists and hospitalist/ intensivist care, health care facility representatives and physicians can make a single call to Banner Transfer Services' toll-free telephone number, (888) 698-2727.
Banner Transfer Services, with 24/7 service by RNs and administrative staff, makes the many calls required to arrange key elements of care and coordinate patient transfers.
The staff fields an average of 1,700 calls per day. On average, 80 percent of those calls result in direct admissions to Banner hospitals rather than coming in through the very busy Emergency department.
One phone call to Banner Transfer Services puts hospitals and health care clinics in touch with the wide variety of adult, pediatric and behavioral health services offered by Banner Health, Arizona’s largest provider of health care services and one of the top 10 health care systems in the United States. Our nonprofit mission is to make a difference in people’s lives through excellent patient care. We fulfill our mission by providing high-quality facilities, expertly trained staff and the desire to put the patient first.
At Banner Health, we take every possible step to ensure patients receive the highest quality and safest care possible. We use technology and innovation, including iCare Intensive Care, surgical robotics, simulation education training, and intelligent OB programs to support our caregivers’ efforts to provide excellent patient care. Several of our hospitals have garnered national recognition for our commitment to patient care and for our patient-safety efforts.
Banner Transfer Services can also arrange for leading specialists to conduct Continuing Medical Education seminars around the state, allowing doctors, nurses and support staff to learn the latest techniques and apply them locally. Recent programs have included Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Trauma, Cardiology, Neurosurgery, Toxicology, Podiatry, Liver Disease, Bariatric Surgery, Neurology, Medical Toxicology and Vascular Surgery.
Banner Health also takes advantage of the Arizona Telemedicine Network to present informative lectures via a secure telemedicine link.
