​​Neonatal Transport

Atrium Health Floyd Emergency Medical Services supports specialized transfer of critically ill infants to our Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

A team of professionals experienced in the care of NICU babies is available 24/7 to provide transport of medically high-risk babies. This team includes specially trained physicians, neonatal nurse practitioners, nurses, respiratory therapists and first responders.

We have a dedicated ambulance designed for the transfer of high-risk infants. Medical equipment available during transfer can help babies maintain body temperature and support their breathing.

Our team cares beyond medical treatment. Before transporting a baby, we provide the mother with an instant photo of her infant. Also, each mother is given a detailed Atrium Health ​Floyd NICU guide with contact information, what to expect and answers to frequently asked questions.


For more information or to schedule a transfer, call 706-509-​6518. ​
