The Adult Critical Care Transport (ACCT) Program, which launched in 2019, is an ambulance-based provider interfacility and intercampus transport for critically ill and injured patients who need specialty care or a higher level of care. During the first year, there were 323 patients transported. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the ACCT has been instrumental in the interfacility transport of patients with COVID-19, including nine patients transported for ECMO consideration, and five patient transported after ECMO cannulation at other hospitals.
