‘Just for Kids’ pediatric transport team
The ”Just for Kids” Transport Team plays an important role in ensuring children from across Kentucky, Southern Indiana and beyond get the specialized care offered at Norton Children’s Hospital. The team uses specially equipped mobile intensive care units, an airplane and a helicopter to provide transportation for young patients in need of sophisticated, sometimes life-sustaining emergency care.
Norton Children’s difference
The Norton Children’s Hospital transport team staff members are trained professionals dedicated to working with ill or injured children, from newborns to teens. They provide the specialized care children require during transport.
The “Just for Kids” Transport Team is made up of intensive care nurses, respiratory therapists and emergency medical technicians.
More than 60 percent of babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Norton Children’s Hospital arrive via the transport team. More premature babies are surviving at smaller birth weights, and other hospitals in the region may not be as equipped to care for the special needs of these tiny babies. Many older children rely on the transport team to bring them to Norton Children’s Hospital for specialized critical care.
