Physician Referral Service

Overview

CHI Franciscan Health offers the physician referral program to help connect our community with providers on our medical staff. The community can get free referrals by calling 1-888-825-3227 or by going online to the Find a Doctor area of fhshealth.org. Our call center provides more than 1,000 physician referrals each year. The online physician referral tool receives on average 25,000 visits each month.
