Allina Health EMS Critical Care
provides specialty transport upon request to both Allina Hospitals and Clinics,
and Non-Allina facilities. Our Critical Care division is comprised of Paramedics
and Emergency Medical Technicians who have received specialty education and
training in all aspects of the care and transport of critically ill patients
and associated life support equipment and devices using the Board for Critical Care
Transport Paramedic Certification (BCCTPC) curriculum in addition to a yearly
mandatory education requirement tailored for the critical care team.
Examples of transport requests include
patients requiring ventilator support with associated care during transport;
neonate, infant, and pediatric patients who require care during transport to
NICU or PICU units; and virtually any other critically ill patient requiring
life support during hospital to hospital transport while receiving ICU level
medications or treatment with ICU specialty devices.
Our status management and priority medical dispatch systems ensure the best-equipped ambulance and best-trained professionals arrive at the scene.
We annually respond to more than 100,000 emergency calls. Allina Health Emergency Medical Services crews respond exclusively to medical emergencies at the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport.
Our paramedics and emergency medical technicians respond to emergency calls and handle transfers between health care facilities, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This requires expertise in airway management, electrocardiograms and other life saving methods.
In an emergency, call 911.
For non-emergency medical transportation, call 651-222-0555.
