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.
