PANDA One-Intensive Care Transport Team

Since 1985, the Children's Hospital of Michigan Intensive Care Transport Team has provided highly specialized care and transport of critically ill neonatal and pediatric patients from all over Michigan.

Intensive Care Transport TeamThe PANDA One team, which serves as a mobile extension of the Children’s Hospital of Michigan, transports more than 1,200 neonatal and pediatric patients from hospitals throughout the state, surrounding states and Ontario, Canada to its midtown Detroit location annually.

Children's Hospital of Michigan's PANDA One offers a dedicated pediatric and neonatal ambulance service and team. A talented group of highly trained Panda One nurses with expertise and certifications in advanced pediatric and neonatal life support lead this team. Every day they stand ready to transport sick and/or injured children who require specialized pediatric medical and/or surgical care from referring hospital intensive care units, emergency rooms and private physician offices. PANDA One's critical care nursing expertise combined with the full nationally recognized Children's Hospital of Michigan ensures children have access to the advanced care when they need it most.

PANDA One is available to referring physicians and hospitals any time, day or night and is equipped to transport a variety of patients-from extremely small preterm infants weighing less than one pound to children through age 21.

The Children’s Hospital of Michigan at the Detroit Medical Center (DMC) has expanded its Pediatric and Neonatal Ambulance service (PANDA One), to include two full time care teams available for transporting sick children from area hospitals to Children’s Hospital for advanced pediatric medical and/or surgical specialty care.

The service deployed depends upon both the severity of the patient's condition and the distance of the transport to the hospital.
