Neonatal Transport Program

The Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital Neonatal Transport Program is dedicated to providing safe and timely transport to and from referring hospitals and our facility in order to improve patient outcomes in the newborn period. This service is provided 24 hours per day year-round.

Our Neonatal transport team is composed of a specialized group of providers, including NICU nurses, respiratory therapists, advanced practice providers, and physicians who are all trained in neonatal medicine. High-risk infants are cared for using state-of-the-art equipment and a specially designed ambulance that allows us to provide all the support needed during transport including:

  • Therapeutic hypothermia
  • Non-invasive respiratory support
  • Conventional mechanical ventilation
  • High frequency ventilation
  • Inhaled nitric oxide

Our team is committed to (1) providing efficient and timely access to transport from outlying institutions using the hospital-based Y ACCESS system; (2) providing excellent multidisciplinary patient care; (3) providing access to level IV support to hospitals in our region; (4) facilitating inter-hospital collaboration and networking; and (5) improving family support.

FOR PHYSICIANS ONLY: To arrange a transport, simply call Y ACCESS at 1-888-964-4233 or 1-888-YNHH-BED to be immediately connected with a Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Attending.
