Referring Provider Tools


Children's Health℠ is a referral hospital, meaning all patients come to the hospital through a referral from their own physician. We make it a simple process for you to refer your patients here.


Patients may be admitted to Children's Medical Center 24 hours a day. When scheduling elective inpatient and same-day admissions, patients may be pre-admitted.
