Round-the-Clock Specialized Pediatric Transport
Our expert team of specially trained registered nurses, respiratory therapists, and emergency medical technicians is available 24 hours a day to transport critically ill newborns and injured children by ambulance or air. We transport more than 6,000 patients annually, specializing in newborn and pediatric intensive care, emergency and transport medicine, and trauma and altitude physiology.
When providing care for a critically ill newborn or injured child, minutes matter. We’re trained to help things go as smoothly as possible between hospitals. As the only transport team in Greater Cincinnati, we’re equipped to transport patients from anywhere in the United States. Instead of adapting medical tools used with adults, our equipment is designed for children to give them the highest quality of care possible.
Our nurses and paramedics are here to help coordinate patient transfers. We can connect you with a pediatric medical specialist for a consultation and will work with you for a seamless transition.
Our Pediatric Transport has a fleet of nine trucks that are designed as mobile intensive care units (ICUs). These custom-built mobile hospital rooms are 30 feet long, 12 feet tall, and 11 feet wide, and they can accommodate two patients at a time. They include the necessary critical care equipment and are designed to help keep children at ease — video, music, bright colors, and interesting themes serve as distractions.
In addition to ground transport that serves the Tristate area (Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana), we regularly airlift patients all over the country (helicopter and airplane transport).
