Emergency Services Transfer Center

Our department conducts the Duke Transfer Center to facilitate and streamline the process for patients with urgent or emergent needs to be transferred to Duke in a timely manner.

We require a physician-to-physician consult and screen patients for medical necessity to ensure that the most urgent needs are met first.

Please contact Marie Hale, RN, clinical operations director for the Duke Transfer Center and Bed Control, at 919-681-2219 or page her at 919-970-3989 if your patient needs to be transferred to Duke.
