Clinical research shows that premature babies do better if they are
born in the same hospital where they will be cared for – and that’s just
one of the reasons why St.Vincent Women's Hospital developed the
Maternal-Fetal Transport Team. Should the need arise, we offer high-risk
transport care via ground or air that includes:
- One-call access to Maternal-Fetal Medicine physicians by calling (317) 338-5000.
- A dedicated response team of High-Risk OB nurses, Paramedics, ground
ambulances, and the St.Vincent STAT Flight for air transport. Ground
ambulances and aircraft are equipped with electronic fetal monitors.
- Maternal-Fetal transport, staffed by a multidisciplinary team of
perinatal specialists and supervised by Maternal-Fetal Medicine
physicians, who safely transfer expectant women experiencing pregnancy
complications to St.Vincent Women’s Hospital.
And, you’ll take comfort in knowing that our Transport Team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
