Direct Connect

Direct Connect 844-504-0004

Quick, convenient 24/7 access to admit or transfer patients to SCL Health hospitals in the Denver region.

Starting Sept. 8, there will be just ONE phone number that community physicians and referring facilities can call to coordinate the process for transferring patients into Lutheran Medical Center.

SCL Health has established a toll-free call center for SCL Health hospitals in the Denver region that will be used to easily transfer or directly admit patients into our hospital. This new system, called Direct Connect, will improve the patient transfer/direct admit processes by providing all logistical coordination from call receipt through patient delivery.  

Direct Connect can help you:

  • Admit or transfer a patient to an ER or inpatient setting
  • Facilitate physician-to-physician communication
  • Connect with a hospitalist or on-call specialist
  • Arrange all forms of medical transport including air
  • Manage logistics for a smooth patient experience

Direct Connect is intended to improve the referring physician’s experience and the patient experience with our hospital by providing a seamless and timelier process to provide easy access to our care sites and our physicians.
