Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, from small towns located nearby to communities a few hundred miles away, by air or by ground - The Woman's Hospital of Texas transport team is ready, willing, and able to serve.
The transport team offers two critical services unique, not only to Houston, but to the entire state: We are dedicated solely to the transfer of women and infants.
Our maternal team focuses on mothers with high-risk pregnancies, or mothers who develop unforeseen complications. We travel with a critical-care paramedic and an experienced labor/delivery nurse.
Our neonatal/NICU transport team focuses on premature babies and ill newborns. We travel with a neonatal-nurse practitioner, a neonatal-transport nurse, and a respiratory therapist.
When it comes to women and babies, we literally go the distance:
- Our helicopter travels within a 150-mile radius of The Woman's Hospital of Texas.
- Our airplane travels within a 250-mile radius of The Woman's Hospital of Texas.
- Our ambulance travels within or beyond the limitations of our aircraft.
While en route to The Woman's Hospital of Texas, our on-board experts consult with the attending physician to confer about care options in preparation for immediate and/or additional treatment to be administered the moment of arrival.
