For patients needing immediate access to critical care medicine, increasing the chance for survival and recovery means getting the best care as quickly as possible. The Children's Transport Team at Children's Memorial Hermann provides specialized emergency pediatric and neonatal transport services for patients from infants to adolescents around the clock, 365 days a year.
The Children’s Transport Team features a team of nurses, respiratory therapists, and physicians highly experienced in pediatric and neonatal critical care. As a quaternary care facility, a Level I pediatric trauma center and home to a 118-bed Level IV neonatal intensive care unit, Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital is equipped and ready to care for the most critical and severe cases. Our transport team regularly transports pediatric and neonatal patients from community hospitals, clinic and emergency departments when a higher level of care is required.

Depending on the location and severity of the child's medical condition, the transport team will use:
Memorial Hermann is the only Houston-based hospital system that offers this innovative service to transport pediatric patients as well as adult patients and care for them at one facility, helping to ensure all patients receive the best care from specialized physicians as soon as possible.

This provides a unique advantage for families, especially in trauma situations when multiple family members are admitted to the EC, as we are equipped to care for the entire family unit in one place.
