Our Sutter Pacific Medical Foundation has created a new and unique relationship with Brown & Toland Physicians for many tertiary and quaternary services. This partnership enables seamless referrals from Brown & Toland physicians and increased access for patients.
If you are a physician and have questions about the authorization process, please call the BT C.A.R.E. help desk at 415-972-6008.
How does this partnership impact my patients?
Brown & Toland's contractual "Continuity of Care" arrangement means that patients under active treatment by specialists at UCSF may continue to do so far at least the next year.
Your patients have access to Brown & Toland's extensive network of specialists, which includes PFCPMC ("The Foundation") and another tertiary care facility: Stanford, as well as Children's Medical Center, St. Mary's Medical Center, St. Francis Hospital and Seton Medical Center.
You will still be able to refer patients, when needed, to UCSF.
If your patients require care that is not available in the community, CPMC will help facilitate what is best for the patient at UCSF or elsewhere.
Who can I or my staff contact with questions?
