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.
