The Children's Mercy Critical Care Transport Program has two bases currently at Children's Mercy main campus near downtown Kansas City, Mo., and at Children's Mercy Hospital Kansas in Overland Park, Kan.
Fourteen ground ambulances move between the two bases while the helicopter, King Air turbo prop and Lear jet aircraft are hangared at the Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport located three miles northwest of Children's Mercy. Transport crews rotate through the airport as well as the two hospital bases based on availability.
Children's Mercy Critical Care Transport provides support to healthcare providers and facilities throughout Missouri and Kansas, as well as nationally and internationally. The transport team members are committed to providing exceptional, cutting edge family-centered care for all patients from the moment they reach the bedside, throughout the transport until they reach their destination. The mode of transport utilized for each transport is determined primarily by patient acuity, distance and weather.
