medical transport service
safe transport for children with critical medical needs
Dayton Children’s provides ground transportation for critically ill and injured children who need to be transferred to or from the hospital and another facility. Our fully equipped transport vehicles serve as medical intensive care units, and are staffed by highly trained, experienced nurses and respiratory therapists.
Patients who are transported from other hospitals to Dayton Children’s may include:
- Newborns who need to be transferred to the Dayton Children’s neonatal intensive care unit
- Patients who need a higher level of care than another hospital is able to provide
- Children who were hospitalized at a distant facility and want to receive care closer to home
In some rare situations, patients are transferred from Dayton Children’s to another facility for care. One example is when an organ becomes available for a child who has been awaiting a transplant.
Our average dispatch to departure time is 15 minutes, and our team has easy highway access from all points in the region. Dayton Children’s also can make arrangements for air transportation when patients need to travel to or from a distant hospital.
