Transport Services

The transportation of critically ill infants, children and expectant mothers requires a specialized team trained and equipped to offer the highest level of care in any setting. Our specialized teams are available 24/7 and are trained to transport critical patients on the ground or in the air.

Prior to transporting a patient, our physician experts and Transfer Center staff consult with referring physicians and facilities to ensure that all options have been explored and a plan is made with the patient’s best interest in mind.
