Providing advanced medical support
When your child needs transportation from a local hospital to Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital, our Critical Care Transport (CCT) team will provide sophisticated medical support during the transfer.
Our specially equipped neonatal and pediatric transport vehicle is designed to provide a high level of care during transfer, and our CCT team is trained extensively in handling newborn and children’s critical illnesses and injuries.
Your child’s CCT vehicle is more than an ambulance. It has advanced equipment that allows our medical team to administer critical care during transport including:
- Advanced life support and crisis medications
- Blood pressure and cardiac monitors that transmit vital signs to emergency room doctors while the CCT is en route allowing for the most appropriate treatment to begin immediately upon arrival
- Endotracheal intubations and ventilator management if your child has respiratory distress
Our specialized pediatric CCT ambulance was made possible by the Hemby Children's Golf Classic, put on each year by the Novant Health Foundation Presbyterian Medical Center.
