Inpatient Admissions: Bed Access Center

The University of Chicago Medicine maintains an innovative, centralized Bed Access Center for quick and easy inpatient admissions. The Center--staffed by RNs--can arrange for transfer of a patient at any time, seven days a week. Our referral counselors work closely with the Admitting Office and UCAN, our emergency helicopter transportation service, to coordinate urgent and scheduled admissions. Our staff can:

  • Locate the appropriate attending physician
  • Make arrangements for the patient's transfer
  • Obtain the correct authorizations
  • Prepare financial paper work
  • Supply a copy of the discharge summary after the patient is released

To request an inpatient admission, please call (773) 834-BEDS(2337).
