Referrals and Transfers for Pediatric ECMO
24/7 Patient Transfers for Physicians
Doctors who wish to transfer a pediatric or newborn patient to our center can call us, 24/7, at 1-800-NYP-STAT (1-800-697-7828). Our team will assess your case and facilitate a timely transport of your patient or dispatch our highly skilled Mobile ECMO Transport Team when appropriate. The team's ambulance has advanced equipment, such as a portable ECMO machine, and specially trained paramedics. Working with other members of the transport team — including the intensive care physician, ECMO surgeon and perfusionist — we bring the services of an intensive care unit to patients to provide the safest possible transport to our hospital.
