Pediatric Transport Program

Our Happy Pediatric Transport Team

Our Pediatric Transport team coordinates and executes the safe transfer of pediatric patients from hospitals throughout Rochester and upstate NY. The team includes a Transport Nurse and Respiratory Therapist who are specially trained to deliver the highest level of care needed during transport. A pediatric intensivist is available to accompany the team should the patient’s condition warrant. This allows all critical care therapies, including advanced airway management, ventilator support, high flow nasal cannula, central venous and arterial access, invasive monitoring, management of multiple drips, and ECMO, to be efficiently and effectively implemented. Along with medical control, the patients are triaged to the appropriate location to continue treatment, be it the pediatric ED, general patient floors, or the dedicated pediatric intensive care units. We primarily use the Golisano Children’s Hospital owned ambulances, but do have the ability for air transport via helicopters or fixed wing aircraft in conjunction with Mercy Flight Central and Mercy Flight Western.
