Patient Referral and Consult
Penn State Hershey Medical Center has a comprehensive process for external providers to request patient transfers, requests for consultations, or schedule outpatient visits.
- Call our MD Network, 1-800-233-4082, for support with any and all external physician needs.
- MD Network staff handle emergent, urgent, and routine matters.
- Calls are answered by a registered nurse who:
- facilitates hospitals transfers;
- collects the appropriate documentation;
- initiates bed placement; and
- arranges transportation through Penn State Hershey Life Lion if needed.
To transfer any patient via LifeLion air or ground, please contact our dispatcher directly at 717-531-7777.
