Transfer Patients to Freeman

Patient transfers made easy

Freeman Direct Call, staffed by Direct Call specialists, serves as the 24/7 contact point for transferring your patients to Freeman.

Call 417.347.3627 or 866.740.3627 to transfer a patient to Freeman. When you call, we will need the patient’s name, date of birth, diagnosis, level of care needed (medical, critical care, cardiology, etc.), and the type of physician needed. The Direct Call Specialist will connect you with a Freeman physician to discuss the care needed and for acceptance.

Once accepted, we will immediately begin the process of obtaining a room. Once a bed has been assigned, the Direct Call specialist will call your facility with the room number and a phone number for nurse-to-nurse reporting. 

Freeman Direct Call, a part of Freeman Transfer Center, coordinates all external transfers, with the exception of neonatal intensive care (NICU) patients. To transfer a patient to Freeman NICU, please call 417.347.3413.
