Neonatal Outreach & Transport

Outreach

Pediatrix Medical Group of Texas - San Antonio has established a Neonatal Outreach Program to serve physicians in the South Texas region. Whether you are an obstetrician, pediatrician, family medicine physician or local emergency room provider, our goal is to provide a direct connection to our neonatologists for the purpose of improving overall neonatal outcomes. The Neonatal Outreach Program aims to optimize pre-transport stabilization if maternal transport is not possible. Through educational lectures, quality improvement activities and open communication, our objective is to promote identification of high-risk neonates for prompt referral and transport. Neonatal education topics include: 

  • Neonatal Resuscitation Program/S.T.A.B.L.E. 
  • Simulation Training 
  • Whole Body Cooling 
  • Congenital Heart Defects 
  • Edge of Viability 

To schedule clinical education or a tour of any of our facilities, please contact our Outreach Manager at 877-636-7374 ext. 223

Transport Teams

Our Neonatal Transport Teams serve as a first link to referring staff, facilities, and families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for inter-facility transports throughout South Texas. In addition, the teams are available for physician consults to assist in patient management. Our practice is committed to communicating patient updates and facilitating back transfers to birth hospitals so that patients may receive care in their own community prior to being discharged home.
