The new air ambulance in use for Medical City Dallas' high-risk pregnancies

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A newly-formed team of neonatal and maternal care nurses is ready to take flight and their mission is to bring some of the sickest unborn babies to Medical City Dallas’ Children’s Hospital.

The program doesn’t have an official name but the nurses on the flight team say they know what to do when a prenant woman has a high-risk pregnancy.  Beginning this week they are ready to fly to rural towns in the Southwest and beyond.  Those patients will be treated by specialists at Medical City.

For more information on the program, check out the Advanced Maternal and Newborn Institute page on the Medical City Dallas webpage.
