Physicians and other health care providers may access our dedicated transport line, 401-444-6600, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This access line is housed in the pediatric intensive care unit. The pediatric critical care attending physician serves as medical director for all pediatric transports.
Pediatric transport is primarily a ground transport service, but air transport can be arranged when the patient's condition necessitates it. This decision is made collaboratively by the referring institution and the transport medical director.
Consultation services with the pediatric critical care attending physicians are also available whether or not transport is requested.
This resource is available to all pediatric health care providers, hospital emergency staff and referring physicians throughout southeastern New England. Together we can provide children with the best possible pediatric care.
