Neonatal Transport Team
An infant transport team travels by ambulance or medical helicopter to pick up infants from throughout Central Florida, including Orlando, Lakeland, Winter Haven, Plant City and Dade City and bring them back to the NICU for treatment. Many infants from outlying areas require the intensive care only found at St. Joseph's Children's. Of course, babies who are born at St. Joseph's Women's and need intensive medical treatment have immediate access to the high level care of NICU.
