Seriously ill children throughout mid-Michigan have rapid access to Sparrow Children’s Center via ground transport or air medical helicopter.

These mobile intensive care units are staffed by our Pediatric Critical Care Transport Team, which includes registered nurses trained in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and experienced in pediatric intensive care. Depending on the patient’s illness, a physician may accompany the nurse-led team. The pediatric transport team also includes registered respiratory therapists experienced in pediatric critical care. All team members are extensively trained in the discipline of pediatric transport medicine.
