Referring Doctors

Connecting you with world-class care

When healthcare providers refer patients to Yale Medicine, we know they come to us for our specialist expertise, cutting-edge technology and multidisciplinary approach. Your trust in us, and our commitment to ongoing communication with you, allows us to work together to ensure your patients receive the best care possible.

We believe in the power of ‘we’ and are committed to providing both you and your patients the collaborative, transparent and personalized care experience you deserve. Whether you or your patients are looking for a first or a second opinion, we offer several ways to learn about our more than 1,200 doctors, as well as our range of specialty services.

  • Find a doctor
    Search our comprehensive directory of care providers by specialty, treatment, condition or department — or search alphabetically, by name. You can also refine your search to find a doctor who matches your patient’s personal preferences, whether it be by gender or language spoken.

  • Call our referral line
    If you are a healthcare provider and would like to refer a patient, but don’t have a specific doctor in mind, please call our referral line at 877-925-3637.

  • Refer through Epic
    If you have Epic in your practice, you can make the referral via Epic. Please be sure to complete all of the required fields.

  • Call Yale New Haven Hospital’s Y Access Line
    Y Access Line offers a streamlined patient transfer service that ensures quick and easy admission to Yale New Haven Hospital. With one call — 888-964-4233 (888-YNHH-BED) — referring providers can speak directly with an attending specialist for an immediate transfer. Trained paramedics assist with admission processing, bed assignment and critical care air transport, using Yale New Haven Health System’s inter-hospital emergency helicopter, SkyHealth, when necessary.
