At Bon Secours, we know that minutes matter, especially for seriously injured or critically ill patients. Timely treatment can have a major impact on medical outcomes. That’s why we created our Critical Care Transport program. Using specially designed and equipped ambulances, our highly skilled and experienced professionals can provide your patients with basic or intensive care en route to our state-of-the-art facilities.
Our team members routinely deliver world-class care by combining clinical excellence and technological expertise. They also know the importance of compassion – and the healing human touch.

Critical Care Transport Team members include:
- Critical Care Nurses

- Emergency Medical Technicians
- Adult Critical Care
- Maternal Fetal Medicine (high risk OB)

All have received advanced training in transport medicine. Medical control physicians oversee the team’s work. These doctors are board certified in each of their specialties. Our transport services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Each Bon Secours Critical Care Transport ambulance is a fully equipped Mobile Intensive Care Unit. Sophisticated monitoring devices, ventilators and emergency medicines are standard on all vehicles. Also available are web cameras and electronic stethoscopes that allow hospital-based physicians to give guidance and feedback to an ambulance team while a patient is on the road.
Other onboard state-of-the-art technology includes:
- Invasive hemodynamic monitoring
- Intra-aortic balloon pump therapy
- Noninvasive external fetal monitors
- Vasoactive medications, blood and blood products, surfactant, and inhaled nitric oxide
In addition, our Critical Care Transport Team has the equipment – and the training – to perform advanced airway procedures and hypothermic therapies. The latter includes induced hypothermia for post-cardiac arrest patients and brain cooling for neonate and and pediatric patients.
