Consultation and Coordination

Lucille Packard Children's HospitalOutpatient consultation and referral

Outpatient consultation, referrals and management can be accessed through the Wall Center. We are happy to discuss patients with referring physicians seeking information on the phone or via email. If the decision is made to refer the patient to Stanford for an in-person consultation then adult patients will be seen in the Chest Clinic at Stanford Hospital, and pediatric patients in the Children's Heart Center at Lucille Packard Children's Hospital. Joint consultations between the adult and pediatric teams can be arranged on an as-needed basis.

For new patient referrals and appointments please call:

Stanford Chest Clinic (adults)

Children's Heart Center at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital
(650) 721-2121

After the initial consultation a faculty physician will contact the referring physician to discuss findings and recommendations. At the request of the referring physician, patients with major symptoms despite empiric therapy may be admitted to the Intensive Care Unit at Stanford. Treatment recommendations and follow-up care are developed through close collaboration with the referring physician.

Inter-hospital transfer of critical patients

If at the time of referral patients are already inpatients at another facility transfer of patients can be arranged via the Stanford Transfer Facility or the LPCH Dispatch Center (for pediatric patients). For critically ill patients the Medical Transport Program at Stanford, which is partner to Life Flight can be called to assist in patient transport.

Inpatient management

Once at Stanford the inpatient management of patients is provided by the pulmonary vascular disease service at each hospital and includes physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers, case managers, pharmacists and a highly skilled inpatient nursing staff.
