New Critical Care Transport Ambulance to Serve Children and Infants in the Region

CHARLESTON, WV - HealthTeam Critical Care Transport held a dedication ceremony to celebrate the arrival of a new Critical Care Transport Ambulance dedicated to serving ill and injured children and infants across the region.

Leaders from HealthTeam, CAMC Women and Children's Hospital and members of the PICU and NICU specialty transport teams gathered at the hospital for the celebration.

"This ambulance will connect children and their families, many who may be in remote areas of Appalachia, to advanced services available at this wonderful hospital," said Clinton Burley, President and CEO, HealthTeam Critical Care Transport. "We’re honored to be their partners in transport to deliver these services to their patients." 

The specially designed ambulance allows for intensive care to be delivered to children and infants. A cheerful exterior paint scheme and bright interior were chosen for the truck to make the transport experience less intimidating for young patients.

“If you go to a premier children’s hospital around the country, this is what you see. Our partnership with HealthTeam Critical Care Transport helps put our facility at a level that is unique and special in our ability to serve our region. We could not do what we do for our patients in West Virginia without this strong partnership,” said Andrew Weber, Vice President and Administrator of CAMC Women and Children's Hospital.

HealthTeam crew members were invited to bring their children to take part in the ribbon cutting for the new ambulance.
