The HCA North Texas Transport Service offers the only transport specialty teams with the ability to provide high risk obstetrical, neonatal, and critical care pediatric patient transport to the appropriate hospital. We assist in transporting patients by ground, helicopter, and fixed wing. Each transport will include two registered flight nurses with specialty care training who offer a high level of care in a dynamic setting.
We are committed to providing safe, physician-directed medical travel. In support of that commitment, three Medical Directors review the Transport Teams and Patient Transfer Center operations and provide feedback to afford us the opportunity to continuously improve the quality of care/service we provide.
The HCA Transfer Center provides twenty-four hour access to the Transport Teams. This unique service simplifies the process of getting a patient transferred to the right hospital, to the right specialists, at the right time. The Patient Transfer Center is staffed by registered nurses and EMT/Paramedics who will assist in arranging the transport logistics.

The Transport Teams
Maternal Transport Team
The Maternal Transport Team is a dedicated transport team staffed by registered nurses with experience in high risk obstetrical antepartum care. The Maternal Transport Team specializes in the stabilization and transport of gravid patients with maternal and fetal complications. Evidence shows that delivery in a facility equipped to care for fetal complications improves on obstetric and fetal outcomes.
We realize that high risk pregnancies are stressful life events for mothers and their families and we strive to provide the highest quality family centered care. Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.
Neonatal / Pediatric Transport Team
The Neonatal / Pediatric Transport Team is a dedicated team staffed by registered nurses with experience in NICU, PICU, Pediatric ER, Flight Nursing and ECMO. The Team specializes in the stabilization and transport of extremely ill infants and children from birth through age 18, providing services such as advanced airway management, neonatal resuscitation, surfactant replacement therapy, umbilical catheter placement, chest tube placement, high frequency ventilation and inhaled nitric oxide.
Our Team is committed to helping our fellow clinicians care for children and their families by providing clinical excellence and exemplary customer service. We do this as members of a Team that extends beyond the confines of our hospital and partners with other caregivers who share our dedication to children and their families. We feel it is a blessing to do this every day.
