Refer a Patient

Physicians at Smilow Cancer Hospital and Yale Medicine partner with each patient’s primary or referring physician to ensure the best care of each patient. Regular communication between our physicians and referring physicians is a priority and we welcome participation in our weekly tumor board meetings.

To refer a patient for care or participation in a clinical trial, please call the referral line at 855-4SMILOW.

Patient Transfers

Our 24/7 Y Access line is a single-source center exclusively for physicians. With one call, physicians can speak to a clinician who is ready to expedite the request for a transfer to Smilow Cancer Hospital. Our mission is to address patient needs in an efficient manner and provide ongoing communication regarding a patient’s condition.
