Pediatric Transport

The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital’s commitment to provide a broad range of services to the community and improve the lives of thousands of seriously ill children is also evident with the implementation of a specially designated 800 telephone number for community pediatricians. The Pediatric Referral line enables pediatricians to call the Children’s Hospital’s pediatric medical and surgical specialists for consultation.

“An established referral line is a valuable vehicle for community pediatricians. The ability to access the hospital’s specialized services with one phone call saves a tremendous amount of time and enhances the quality of care for our patients,” says Highland Park pediatrician Robert Biener, MD.
