Traveling for Care?
Whether you're crossing the country or the globe, we make it easy to access world-class care at Johns Hopkins.
The Johns Hopkins Comprehensive Transplant Center is committed to continually improving our partnership of care and communication with our healthcare colleagues.
We encourage you to use the Hopkins Access Line (HAL), a 24-hour hotline for physicians, to reach any Hopkins specialist at any time in order to refer a patient or to consult about a patient's care.
As a physician, your call will be received by a HAL service representative. Our representatives have access to Hopkins physicians' schedules, on-call lists, and telephone and pager numbers - all the numbers needed to reach the physician promptly. If you wish to speak with a specific physician and he or she is unavailable, the representative will direct you to an available specialist or arrange for the requested physician to return your call.

You may also complete and send us a patient referral form:
For kidney or pancreas transplant, please call 410-955-5045 and press 1.
We have provided a list of patient selection criteria and referring physician checklist for each organ and tissue transplant. We encourage you to utilize these tools when referring your patients for transplantation at Johns Hopkins.
We welcome you to contact us to speak with any member of our transplant team regarding organ- and tissue-specific transplants, how to refer a patient, or our patient selection criteria.
