Maternal Transport Program

The Maternal Transport Program is for antepartum women in need of specialized inpatient maternal care unavailable at transferring facilities.

The Maternal Transport service is open to referring physicians for antepartum patients with a viable fetus (approximately 23 weeks), who are experiencing high-risk antepartum complications, including (but not limited to):

  • Preterm, premature rupture of the membranes
  • Pre-eclampsia
  • Preterm labor
  • Medically complex antepartum patients needing ancillary services (e.g., critical care, cardiovascular care, neurology services, trauma care or other specialized care services)
 

The Maternal Transport team will use the most appropriate means of transport including helicopter, ground ambulance or plane to provide a safe trip for patients.

Maternal-fetal medicine, neonatology and obstetrics and gynecology hospitalists on the medical staff—as well as specialty-trained antepartum nursing staff—are available to evaluate antepartum patients promptly upon transfer.
