Contact Center Nurses
Registered nurses (RN) are available day and night to speak with patients by phone. Nurses at the centers come from clinical backgrounds ranging from emergency care to pediatrics, which is helpful, given the wide range of calls that come in. RNs at the contact centers also offer health and wellness information, and help callers find and set up appointments with physicians. What's more, the centers allow many nurses — and their vast knowledge — to keep providing patient care when they are no longer able to tackle 12-hour floor shifts. HCA has call centers in Nashville, Fort Myers, Fla., Kansas City, San Antonio, Texas and Salt Lake City, Utah.

Transfer Center Nurses
Registered nurses field calls from other clinicians, gather clinical information for a transfer request and then facilitate the transfer by matching the patient's clinical needs to the facility with bed capacity and service capability. They will prioritize patient information and communicate an accurate clinical presentation of the patient for accepting physicians and nurses. So, clinical knowledge is so important in the transfer center because time, speed and skill are critical to get the patient where he/she needs to go for care. HCA Healthcare transfer centers are located in 16 different locations across the country.
