The Henry Zarrow Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU) transport team is designed to take the Level IV NICU to the referral hospitals. The transport team is composed of registered nurses and respiratory therapists who stabilize and transport critical infants to the Henry Zarrow NICU. The team has specialized equipment and supplies to provide stabilization and transport.
The specialized Henry Zarrow NICU transport team goes to more than 20 smaller referral hospitals throughout eastern Oklahoma and the bordering states of Missouri and Arkansas. The NICU transport team contributes to an average of 300 neonates being admitted to the Henry Zarrow NICU per year. About 35 percent of infants admitted to the Henry Zarrow NICU are born at other hospitals.
