Scheduling process for new patient referrals
All new referrals must be scheduled through Le Bonheur Connect (1-866-870-5570) or PACES, Le Bonheur's online appointment request system. Do not contact our Outpatient Clinics directly for new referrals unless the patient needs to be seen urgently after registration. If referring for an abnormal test result, please send the specific abnormal report (EKG, EEG, ECHO, X-ray, labs, etc.) necessary to fulfill the appointment request.

The new interventional radiology (IR) suite is now open for new cases. To book an outpatient IR case, call (901) 287-7254 for availability and approval. The IR team will notify the referring physician once the procedure is confirmed. After confirmation, the physician should call central scheduling at (901) 287-6073 and choose option 2 to book the case. All cases will be booked under "SP Consult IR LEB."
To book add-on cases the day of surgery, call IR for availability and approval at (901) 287-7254.
