Children's Transport Services

Our Children's Transport Services consists of both a neonatal transport team and a pediatric transport team.

"Kids are NOT small adults" is a common phrase used by pediatric physicians and with good reason. Children require specialized medications, medical equipment and have vastly different responses to certain disease processes. That is why the University of Mississippi Medical Center has developed a transport team focused on children, with the intent of bringing ICU level care to the patient.

UMMC is home to the state's only Children's Hospital, level One Trauma Center, and only Level IV NICU but the children and infants in Mississippi should not have to wait to receive that higher level of care. With this specialized training and equipment, our team is able to extend the same level of care offered at Batson Children's Hospital to any hospital or healthcare facility in the state.
