Referring Physician Relations

The Office of Referring Physician Relations is here to address questions or concerns from referrers and to serve as a catalyst for action. We hope to provide efficient and effective support to community physicians and their patients, as well as identify common interests and opportunities to partner.

Our staff wants to become familiar with you, your practice and what you are looking for in a referring provider relationship. With your help, we want to identify ways to:

  • Promote positive referring provider relationships
  • Encourage effective communications
  • Provide forums for education and learning
  • Provide information on what is happening at UI Hospitals and Clinics

Our Services:

We serve as a convenient, single point of contact for any questions or concerns you or your office staff may have about procedures or services.
