After-Hours Care for Patients

Through the Bridge to Care program, urgent and emergent after-hours care for RPCI patients is managed through the Emergency Department of Buffalo General Hospital (BGH), which is connected to RPCI by a pedestrian, wheelchair access bridge. RPCI patients who require urgent and emergent medical attention after hours should call 716-845-2300 and talk to an RPCI on-call physician.

BGH attending staff and physicians will have full access to the patient’s electronic medical record, and coordinate next steps with RPCI physicians and the Inpatient Transfer staff at 716-845-4358, who will arrange transfer to RPCI, if necessary.
