Coronavirus Update:What patients and families need to know

Make a Referral

You may fax referrals for pediatric specialty care to Children's National at 202-476-7651, or use Direct Messaging to send referrals. Please do not fax lab, diagnostic or radiology results.

This 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. 

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
