Exceptional Care of patients, Support for families, Service to all.  

Advances in pediatric and neonatal intensive care and regionalization of services require the high quality, efficient, and safe inter-hospital transport services for critically ill or injured infants and children. 

The primary goal of the Boston Children’s Hospital Transport Program is to improve outcomes for critically ill neonatal and pediatric patients who require transport to our facility.  Through improved access, system efficiency, and expert patient care, our goals are to reduce morbidity and mortality, improve patient and family satisfaction, and support the tertiary care programs at Boston Children's Hospital.  We will strive for the continuous professional advancement of our team through advanced staff education, peer review, and quality improvement activities. 

We are committed to improving the quality of acute neonatal and pediatric care in the region through outreach education and support of community programs.  Furthermore, we plan to contribute to the field of transport medicine through research and participation in system improvement and policy development on a regional and national level.

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.”
