The Critical Care Transport Team’s mission is to safely commit to the most compassionate,professional, highest-quality mobile critical care transport available. The team will use a foundation of education, experience, and customer service while acting as team players, team leaders and mentors for Acute Medical Services.
The Acute Medical Services Critical Care Transport Team is deployed whenever a patient has care needs exceeding the current local EMS standards for Advanced Life Support ambulance providers.Acute Medical Services Critical Care Teams have been meeting the care needs of critically ill or injured patients with a two-fold approach; we place critical care registered nurses on the ambulance and we provide a select group of paramedics who are educated in advanced practice modalities above that of an Advanced Life Support paramedic.
All CCT staff members are chosen based on experience, critical thinking skills and the ability to provide specialized care.Acute Medical Services’ registered nurses all have a critical care background, and its CCT paramedics have had years of EMS field experience and actively work Emergency Department along side one of its four Emergency Department physicians. The Critical Care Team works daily to provide patients with the high level of monitoring and care required in these exceptional situations.
