Critical Care Transport Program

Boston Children's Emergency Communications Center facilitates and coordinates emergency patient transport to Boston Children's Hospital. With one phone call, community pediatric providers can request:

  • Boston Children's Critical Care Transport Team
  • Arrange transfer to Children's Emergency Department or ICU
  • Access Children's specialists for urgent consultation

Trained communication specialists dedicated to handling emergency referrals for medical, surgical, trauma, neonatal and cardiac patients staff the Center. The Center's staff works closely with community providers (physicians, nurses, administrative staff) to mobilize the Critical Care Transport Team, discuss the availability of a bed, and plan for interim stabilization.

For Transport: 1-866-771-KIDS (toll-free)
For Information: 617-355-2170

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
