Children's Ambulance and Helicopter

How to Refer a Patient

At AdventHealth for Children, formerly Florida Hospital for Children, our Emergency Transport Center is here to provide you with 24/7 support and transfer services by ambulance and helicopter from referring physicians and hospitals. Our Pediatric Transport and Critical Care team will work closely with referring doctors to ensure the safest and quickest transfers based on the patient’s condition and distance from our facility.

Our transport clinicians are highly experienced nurses and respiratory therapists and work under the supervision of our neonatologists or pediatric critical care doctors depending on the needs of your patient.
