Specialty Care Services

CareFlite’s specialty care transport (SCT) is a service enhancement to our program. It is a safe, rapid mode of transport, and patients receive quality care. The SCT should be utilized in instances when a critical patient is in need of specialized care, and within a 30 minute drive time of the destination facility. SCT is also an option and available during adverse weather conditions.


SCT (Specialty Care Transport) operates with a three person team including a Critical Care Paramedic, an EMT-P and EMT and should be used for those critical patients who need a high level of care during the transfer but for whom the speed of a helicopter or fixed wing transport is not needed or not available due to adverse weather.

The SCT team includes:
  • A Critical Care Paramedic (CCEMT-P) with a minimum of 2 years of experience.
  • A paramedic with at least one year of experience
  • A certified EMT professional

All CCEMTP and paramedic team members are trained in trauma, cardiac, neonatal, obstetrics, pediatrics, and burn care, Minimum certifications are Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) and/or Basic Trauma Life Support (BTLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and Neonatal Resuscitation Provider (NRP).

CareFlite SCT has the capability to treat trauma, obstetric, neonate/isolette, and adult and pediatric medical patients. There is also the ability to add a flight crew member(s) to the team if additional expertise is needed. CCEMT-P’s are trained to perform:
  • Rapid sequence intubations
  • Endotracheal Intubations
  • Intraosseous insertion
  • Fetal heart monitoring
