Maternal-Fetal Transport Services
Women who are pregnant and experience complications often require special attention and need rapid medical care during their pregnancy. Over 150 high-risk pregnant women are transferred safely and quickly to Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center each year. They receive the most advanced maternal and neonatal medical care available in the Greater Southern California area regardless of their diagnosis, race, ethnicity or financial status.
Established in 1994, our emergency Maternal-Fetal Transport Services are available 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week. Our team coordinates every transport. One call to 909-865-9713 immediately puts our team into action. We contact the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Physician, coordinate the method of transport (ground or air) and the multidisciplinary team is ready to respond and deploy within 30 minutes of accepting the request.
Our Maternal-Fetal Transport Team includes: Maternal-Fetal Medicine Physicians, Obstetricians, Physician sub-specialists, Registered Nurses and Respiratory Therapists.
