Provider Referrals

Your patient may be at higher risk for a cerebral aneurysm if they have two first degree relatives (sibling, parent, grandparent) with a history of cerebral aneurysm.

If your patient is at higher risk, please order an MR Angiogram (MRA) or CT Angiogram (CTA) to screen the patient for an aneurysm and then refer them to the Cerebrovascular Center, if necessary. 

To refer a patient to the Swedish Cerebrovascular Center, call 206-320-3470 or fax your referral to  206-320-3471.

Urgent Cases

Our care team accepts patient transfers 24/7 from providers and hospitals throughout the Pacific Northwest. To facilitate an urgent patient transfer, call the Swedish Transfer Center: 866-470-4233.
