Our Children's Transport Services consists of a Neonatal Transport Team, a Pediatric Transport Team and the Drivers/Operators who serve both.
UMMC is home to the state's only Children's Hospital, Level One Trauma Center, and only Level IV NICU. When a child is in need, anywhere in Mississippi, getting the necessary level of care as soon as possible is critically important. Our dedicated Children's Transport Teams make sure that injured and ill children and infants do not have to wait until they arrive at Children's Hospital to receive the highest level of care. Children's Transport Services brings ICU level care to the patient and manages that care along every mile of the journey. The Neonatal and Pediatric Transport Teams have the specialized training, equipment and ability to extend the same high level of care offered at Children's of Mississippi to the child, both before and during their transport to the UMMC campus. As long as there are children and infants with complex medical needs, our Children's Transport Teams will be on the road - and in the air - making sure they receive the best care possible.
