Acute Care Transport Services

The Acute Care Transport Service (ACTS) provides 24-hour medical advice, stabilization and inter-hospital transport for critically ill and injured newborns and children.

ACTS is comprised of specially trained registered nurses and registered respiratory therapists who are supported by critical care physicians. In partnership with Toronto Paramedic Services (TPS), dedicated paramedics and ambulances allow ACTS to respond to all emergent and urgent transports in a timely manner.  Aimed at improving patient care and enhancing patient outcomes, ACTS provides a ‘mobile intensive care’ to bring critical care to kids in our community hospitals.

ACTS receives approximately 2500 calls per year from provincial, national and international communities requesting advice or transfer for their patients. ACTS was awarded the SickKids President’s Award for ‘Championing the Evolution of Health Systems’ in 2019.
