The “Just for Kids” Transport Team began as a neonatal ambulance service in 1978. Over 40 years later, has grown into a team transporting more than 2,000 newborns, children and adolescents (to age 21) annually.
The team has specially equipped mobile intensive care units and medically configured aircraft, designed for special health care needs. We can transport patients 24 hours a day from our referral center partners in Kentucky and Southern Indiana, as well as travel anywhere in the continental United States should a child require specialized care from Norton Children’s.
The safety of our patients and staff is our first priority. Each vehicle maintains up-to-date licensure and inspections as required by state and federal agencies that oversee emergency medical services.
Our transport vehicles were funded by generous donations from community members through the Norton Children’s Hospital Foundation. If you would like to support the team, consider donating at NortonChildrens.com/Donate.
