If your child is delivered at another hospital and requires our services, a team of specially trained registered nurses and respiratory therapists is dispatched to accompany your child along the way to a Florida Hospital for Children NICU. The care provided en route is identical to that of our NICU, as the transport team is in constant communication with us before, during and after transport by ambulance or Florida Flight I, our emergency air-medical transport service.

The skill to heal. The spirit to care.
