Pediatric Critical Care

Pediatric Transport Program

Pediatric Transport ProgramThe Golisano Children’s Hospital Transport Program at URMC provides an extension of the Pediatric Critical Care Unit to remote locations throughout the region. The transport team coordinates and provides transport services to Golisano Children’s Hospital for critically ill or injured children. Our team operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is responsible for the resuscitation, stabilization, and the inter-hospital transfer of pediatric patients up to 19 years of age.

The Transport Team

The Critical Care Transport Team includes a pediatric Transport Nurse, a Pediatric Transport Respiratory Therapist, a Paramedic, and, as necessary, a Pediatric Critical Care Physician. The team manages critically ill children with a wide range of conditions including respiratory failure, shock, cardiac compromise and neurologic conditions. The team preforms advanced skills, such as airway management, arterial and venous access, and renders ongoing critical care to the patient throughout the transfer process while under the supervision of a pediatric critical care physician.
