Referral Process

  1. The physician refers the patient to TSRHC. (See our referral guide for detailed information.)
  2. TSRHC reviews the patient’s clinical notes and information.
  3. If the patient is accepted, the family will receive a phone call and/or letter from TSRHC. If the patient is not eligible for treatment at TSRHC, the family will receive a notification letter.
  4. The physician will receive a follow-up letter regarding the patient’s acceptance status.

To obtain an application, please contact our Patient Access department at (214) 559-7477 or (800) 421-1121, ext. 7477. You may also e-mail questions about referring a patient to tsrhpa@tsrh.org.

What to Tell Your Patients

Upon acceptance, patient families will receive appointment and travel information by mail or phone. Information about travel and lodging and other helpful resources can be found on the During Your Visit page of our Web site.

At the initial visit to TSRHC, a patient can expect an evaluation by the medical team, a detailed description of next steps for treatment and the opportunity to ask any questions.
