Traveling for Care?
Whether you're crossing the country or the globe, we make it easy to access world-class care at Johns Hopkins.
The Johns Hopkins Lifeline Transportation Program is a comprehensive program that facilitates any type of transportation necessary. Lifeline has been a leader in the Critical Care Transport field since 1992. The hospital-based program was one of the first of its kind in the region.
The Johns Hopkins Lifeline Transportation program was designed to provide advanced life support and critical care services for patients referred to The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions.
In an effort to expedite and streamline patient flow into and throughout the Johns Hopkins Medical System, an integrated delivery system was developed to meet the demands for all types of transportation. Contractual agreements, which support the various types of transportation (ground, rotor wing and fixed wing) demands have been instrumental to the success of the program.
Lifeline also operates an In-house transport program that is capable of moving an ICU patient to a needed advanced procedure within the institution. This movement allows for the ICU level of care to remain in place while the patient is moved to the procedure area and then back to their room. The patient is taken by our staff consisting of a Critical Care Registered Nurse, Critical Care Paramedic and Transport Team EMT's who are specially trained to assist in the transport environment.
