Our transport vehicles include a King Air B200 critical care transport airplane, an American Eurocopter 145 helicopter and four ambulances. Each are equipped to transport critical care patients and feature pediatric-oriented technology. Our team of highly specialized nurses, respiratory therapists and paramedics begin giving care to your patient immediately upon our arrival to your location. Once they arrive at Cook Children's Medical Center, patients will be treated by our board certified physicians and nationally recognized nursing staff. Cook Children's Medical Center has achieved Magnet designation, which places our nurses in the top 5 percent in the nation.
Cook Children's Teddy Bear Transport staff of 52 neonatal/pediatric nurses, respiratory therapists and paramedics is proud to have more than 400 combined years of transport experience. This team is dedicated to getting the most medically fragile children and neonates to our award-winning medical center quickly and safely.
Our level IIIC NICU is staffed with a team of neonatologists and specialists who combine expertise with the latest technology to provide the highest level of neonatal care available.
Cook Children's designated level II Trauma Center is staffed and equipped to provide comprehensive emergency medical services to patients suffering traumatic injuries 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Interfacility transport, performed by a pediatric critical care specialized transport team, compared with transport by a nonspecialized team, was associated with improved survival rates and fewer unplanned events during transport, regardless of the severity of illness.1
Our latest addition to the team – an EC-145 helicopter – is equipped with leading-edge technology and safety features including:
Fixed-wing airplane operated by SevenBar Aviation, Albuquerque, N.M. EC-145 operated by Air Methods Corporation, Engelwood, Colo.
