Transfer/Referral

Transferring burn patients to Grady’s Burn Center is just a telephone call away. We accept referrals and transfers of patients of all ages with any burn-related injury or advanced wound. If your patient requires the care of a Burn Center backed by a Level I Trauma Center, surgeons are prepared to consult with you and accept your patient.

The process is simple. Here is how it works:

  • For outpatient referrals, complete the Grady Patient Referral Form and fax it to the number provided on the form. Provide the patient with the Grady Discharge Instruction Form to bring to his or her first appointment at the Burn Center.
  • For inpatient referrals, call the Grady transfer line: 1-866-GRADY-TX (1-866-472-3989). Your call will be answered by the nurse-staffed Grady Transfer Center and arrangements will be made to transfer your patient. Complete the Grady Transfer Form and fax it to the Transfer Center number provided to ensure a smooth transfer process.
  • For an emergency transfer, call 911 and advise your patient that the nearest comprehensive burn treatment center is the Grady Burn Center.
