Patient transfer


Who to call

For physicians: Transfer a patient to Inova

The Inova Fairfax Medical Campus Access Center helps physicians refer and transfer adult and pediatric patients into any of the facilities on the Inova Fairfax Medical Campus:

Our Physician Referral Coordinators have all the necessary physician and unit connections to enable easy transfer of patients to the appropriate department. Inova Fairfax Hospital offers Northern Virginia’s only level 1 trauma center for treating the most critically injured patients, has one of the nation's most-sought-out obstetrics programs and offers a level IV neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

Transport options

If ambulance transport is needed, we can arrange it through Physicians Transport Service (PTS). PTS has specialty and critical care capabilities for all ages of patients (adult, pediatric, neonatal) and all sizes – from neonatal up to 1600 pounds.

ED to ED transfer

For ED to ED transfers, please call the Inova Fairfax Medical Campus Emergency Department Communications Room at 703-776-2925.
