Transfer Center


Cookeville Regional Medical Center’s Transfer Center is the main entry point for all transfer requests from physicians and other facilities. With one call, you will speak directly to a nurse who will coordinate the entire process for you.

The centralization of transfer requests means that we can handle your request to transfer a patient more efficiently through staff members who will have firsthand knowledge of bed capacity and will therefore be able to expedite the process for you and the patient. Calls to the Transfer Center are accepted 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The process for admitting MI (myocardial infarction/heart attack) patients to Cookeville Regional has not changed. You will still continue to notify the Cookeville Regional emergency department when transferring a heart attack patient to us. The ED physician and staff will implement the Code STEMI protocol to call in our cardiologist-on-call as well as the cardiac cath team.
