Patient Care Services

In 2011 we partnered with St. John's Hospital's Connect Regional Transfer Center to host our consult, referral, and transfer process. This telephone line provides around the clock access to one of the SIU GI/Liver specialists, and will allow for a seamless process for both GI/Liver consults and transfers throughout the Region.

For access to all GI/Liver services at SIU, please call Connect at 888-544-6464 and you will be transferred to the on-call specialist. Should your patient require a transfer, Connect can assist with all aspects of the transfer and will also confirm the patient's safe arrival. At discharge a complete summary will be provided to both the transferring physician and the patient's primary care physician.
