Kids Kare is Wolfson's mobile intensive care unit for infants and children, serving a 250-mile radius of Jacksonville, Florida. What began as a neonatal transport service for critically ill newborns is now a comprehensive service for infants and children up to age 18.
The Kids Kare team, which includes two mobile ICU ambulances, is comprised of a nurse and respiratory therapist cross-trained in both pediatric and neonatal intensive care. Operated by Century Ambulance, our Kids Kare Mobile ICUs have the capability to transport two patients at a time. Complementing our Kids Kare ambulance service, Life Flight provides air transport for critically ill infants and children, accompanied by the Kids Kare team.
The spacious Kids Kare ambulance is equipped with advanced monitoring, a defibrillator, IV pumps, neonatal/pediatric ventilators, infant isolettes with warmers, medications and everything needed to care for critically ill infants and children.
The team transports more than 1,000 infants and children to Wolfson Children's Hospital per year.
