In 1998 Dr. Swantz became the Medical Director of the Neonatal Transport Team and coordinated the re-design of the system to a predominantly nurse-respiratory therapist model. He led that transport program for 25 years and trained over 100 nurses and respiratory therapists with advanced skills and knowledge in neonatology. He stepped down from that leadership role in 2023.
Dr. Swantz now focuses his efforts on utilization management and professional/hospital billing. He currently is the Physician Advisor in Utilization Management for the Department of Pediatrics.
