Are you referring a patient to Providence?

The Providence Spokane Admit Transfer Center is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week by specially trained RNs/patient flow managers for all patient transfer arrangements.

A nurse will arrange transportation, admit and place your patient. If needed, they will connect you with an admitting physician at Sacred Heart or Holy Family, and provide updates every 15 minutes until the patient is placed in a bed.

*Note: These numbers are to be used by medical professionals only. Call 911 if you are having an emergency.

Confidentiality and treatment guidelines for credentialed staff

Confidentiality and privacy are important to all our patients – including your friends, coworkers and family members – and a responsibility we take very seriously. Please use your Epic ‘in-basket’ only for communications among treatment team members; inadvertent use may give access to the full patient medical record and result in a HIPAA violation.

As it has for many years, Medical Staff policy follows the AMA recommendation that physicians not self-treat or treat family members.
