Specialty Referral Requests

Practices may now FAX referrals for pediatric specialty care to Children’s National Medical Center.

This new system allows you to seamlessly send referral information to our Contact Center. This allows your care team to provide pertinent information about a patient to our specialists so we can better co-manage your patients and meet their specialty care needs.

Once you fax in the request, either using our form or one generated from your electronic medical record or insurance pathways, our team will contact the family to schedule the appointment. After we schedule the appointment, we will fax an appointment confirmation to your practice.

This is our service promise to you!

The following information must be included in the referral:

  • Physician name
  • Practice name
  • Patient’s name
  • Date of birth
  • Reason for visit
  • Specialty department, service, and specific doctor to provide services
  • If interpretive services are required, please indicate which language
  • If appointment is scheduled prior to faxing the referral, please provide scheduled appointment date and time
  • Date of referral

Fax referrals to: 202-476-7651

Please do not fax lab, diagnostic, or radiology results.

For assistance or more information, call Michelle Durham at 301-572-3075.
